Total Monsoon

Endless Monsoon anthology "Total Monsoon" green front cover with swamp scene and plastic fern leaves
Total Monsoon risograph anthology by Sarah Welch

Total Monsoon is the culmination and finale to our Endless Monsoon project. This 310 page risograph comix anthology with screen printed cover contains the entire arc of our series, and also includes brand new content in the form of interstitial comics between books, interviews, and very special foreword by Robert Boyd.

Produced at a larger size of approximately 7.25″ x 10.5″, this perfect bound publication was a definite challenge to produce! Originally slated for release in late 2017, we had to delay until spring of 2018 due to the flooding of our studio during Hurricane Harvey. Luckily, our trusty Risograph GR3750 was able to avoid damage during the storm, and we were able to resume printing after rehabilitating our space with the aid of friends and family.

Special thanks to everyone who helped to make this project a reality!

Letterpress Coasters for ACK!

If you’re keeping your eyes peeled while traveling around Houston, you’ve no doubt spotted work by ACK!. Well, we were thrilled to work with him on a set of custom letterpress coasters!

Letterpress coasters can be a bit challenging– on the one hand, you don’t want to create an expensive coaster that people will be reluctant to use. Yet, on the other hand, you can’t rely on traditional coaster blanks when working with letterpress, since they tend to crack and break when pressure is applied to the surface. So what is a letterpress printer to do?

At Mystic Multiples, we prefer to print on a super thick blotter paper stock, and then die cut the coasters to final size. Doing it this way lets us avoid the cracking that comes with cheaper coaster stock, and avoid the higher price of our finer paper offerings. It’s no coincidence that we often like to recommend our blotter stock for thick business cards as well!

Brackish

Over a five month period Mulholland and Welch each created many, many ink drawings, they curated those works and compiled them into the Brackish zine. Drawings of special interest were chosen to become risograph or letterpress prints paired alongside the book.

Brackish, the art zine images the past, present, and sometimes invented future of the Houston landscape. The book features local and invasive flora & fauna, architecture, interior spaces, city infrastructure, industry, and residential vignettes. Special attention is lavished on locations with ancient, sometimes futuristic presence. Think 2001: A Space Odyssey meets Jurassic Park.
