LÖK ZINE #10 DIMENSIONS \ DIMENSIONI

ENG  

LÖK ZINE# 10 DIMENSIONS / DIMENSIONI is going to be a bilingual (english and italian) comics and illustration anthology, with more than 120 pages in colors, paperback, size A4 8,3 x 11,7 ".

LÖK ZINE is an independent comics and illustration magazine.The guiding theme changes in each issue and artists from all over the world give life to them. 


Here's its tenth issue! In order to celebrate this landmark we decided to make some changes: the contributions are in full color and we doubled the page count. Quite the dimensions change! As suggested by the theme.
Dimension represents the degrees of freedom with which a point can move in space, these degrees are described by measures that define a shape and a size. We're talking about big, small, narrow, large, but also about dimensions in a wider sense, the space, the relationship we have with it and parallel universes, everything told through our authors' hands.

We hope the simple two dimensions of paper can transport you to a world where you'll be able to imagine, feel and live an unforgettable experience.

LÖK ZINE# 10 DIMENSIONI / DIMENSIONI sarà un'antologia bilingue (inglese e italiano) di fumetto e illustrazione, di oltre 120 pagine completamente a colori, brossurata e in formato A4 21,0 × 29,7cm.

LÖK ZINE è una rivista indipendente di fumetto e illustrazione. Ha temi diversi in ogni uscita e ospita autori da tutto il mondo. Ecco il suo decimo capitolo! 

Per celebrare questo traguardo abbiamo deciso di fare qualche cambiamento: i contenuti sono completamente a colori e il numero delle pagine è più che raddoppiato

Un bel cambio di Dimensioni! Come suggerisce il tema di questo numero.
La dimensione rappresenta i gradi di libertà che un punto ha di muoversi all’interno dello spazio, questi vengono definiti tramite misure che ne indicano forma e grandezza. Si parla quindi di grande, piccolo, stretto, largo, ma anche di dimensioni in senso più ampio, lo spazio, il rapporto con ciò che ci circonda e i mondi paralleli, il tutto narrato dai segni dei nostri autori. 

Speriamo che le sole due dimensioni del foglio vi trasportino in un mondo dove poter immaginare, sentire e vivere un’esperienza indimenticabile.

Risks and challenges

ENG

This is our first crowdfunding ever, but we gained 7 years of experience in publishing books and magazines, in communication and events organization.
We do not have physical headquarters, we work from different cities and different countries and we think of that as an opportunity to be more reactive and open.
We believe that improving our project is possible thanks to our web of authors and to people that support us.

LÖK ZINE is absolutely independent, nobody in the staff is on a salary for their work: the project is the product of our love for comics, illustration, for meeting new artists, new realities and for our professional growth.

LÖK ZINE is democratic, it feeds off the dialogue and confrontations of its members, every decision is taken with mutual agreement.
All the authors that get involved are the expression of the taste of the editorial staff and the human relationship that we developed in time.
We hope you'll appreciate our work and that you'll support us in this awesome journey.

ITA
Questo è il nostro primo crowfunding, ma abbiamo alle spalle un’esperienza di 7 anni nella produzione di libri e riviste, nel campo della comunicazione e dell’organizzazione di eventi.
Non abbiamo una sede fisica, operiamo tutti in città e paesi diversi e lo riteniamo una ricchezza, un modo per essere più reattivi e aperti.

Crediamo che riusciremo a far crescere il progetto grazie alla nostra rete di autori e alle persone che ci supportano.
LÖK ZINE è un progetto completamente indipendente, nessuno del collettivo percepisce una retribuzione per il lavoro svolto: è il frutto dell’amore per i fumetti, per l’illustrazione, per l’incontro con nuovi autori, nuove realtà e per la crescita artistica e professionale di ognuno di noi.

LÖK ZINE è un progetto assolutamente democratico, si alimenta della discussione e del confronto dei suoi fondatori, ogni decisione è presa di comune accordo.
Tutti gli autori coinvolti nel progetto sono l’espressione del gusto della redazione e del rapporto umano che abbiamo sviluppato nel tempo.
Speriamo che riuscirete ad apprezzare il nostro lavoro e a sostenerci in questo viaggio meraviglioso.
