    Seawitches, a zine for waterpeople, is a bi-annual print publication. Founded by surfer Margaret Seelie in 2015, the project exists to tell stories inspired by water.

    As a community-based platform, each issue takes on the life of its contributors. Designer Leah Koransky used Temeraire for narrative personal stories and Temeraire Italienne for display type throughout the zine. Additional copy is set in Maison Neue, Maison Neue Mono, and Recoleta. Designer Savannah Rusher created the custom Wetsuit Guide title treatment and illustrations.

    The Seawitches logo was drawn by hand by Leah Koransky and references California surf culture, vintage paperback sci-fi and mystery novels, and psychedelia.

    Reflecting the DIY spirit of the zine, the covers are hand-dyed with botanical inks; the blue is indigo and the yellow is fennel and oxalis flowers.

    Printed and bound by Colorprint in Burlingame, CA. Covers letterpress printed at Open Windows Cooperative in San Franicsco, CA with art by Cristine Blanco.
