In Chilean graphic designer Anibal Bley’s zine, he plays with multiple definitions of the Spanish word “Paso” by taking viewers on an abstract and colourful journey. Interpreted as meaning “step, pace, path and way” as well as “the act of passing”, Anibal experiments with ideas of “the passage and the omission” by creating glitchy patterns, unusual illustrations and hand-drawn, almost coded messages.
Published by artist-run, New York-based publisher Txt Books, the zine is the first project the collective has collaborated on with an outside artist. Over 24 pages, ambiguity reigns free with unusual compositions and layouts enhancing the randomness of the content.
Paso has been printed as a four-colour Risograph and these limitations give the zine an old school textbook-feel, echoed by striped designs, checkerboards and cheeky characters in primary and secondary colours.
