@ Lab 1270 // Washington DC

Alison Baitz is a freelance writer and artist living in Maryland. After many years of wanting to start a zine but being too chicken, she got involved with that of her BFF Malaka Gharib, The Runcible Spoon. Then she made her own, On Flora, and is super glad she did.

Malaka Gharib is a cartoonist, a collector of tiny objects, a fan of 90s music, and a journalist at NPR. She is the founder of The Runcible Spoon, a food zine, the illustrator behind The Little Filipino Food Coloring Book and Food Fantasies And How To Execute Them and the creator of Bubble Pop! A Kpop Fanzine. 

The DC Art Book Fair was a first-of-its-kind event in the nation's capital. A one-day event designed to spotlight local (and whoever else wanted to apply) makers of paper goods, from artistic photo prints to high-end artist publications and everything in between. A curated event, it took place at Lab 1270 on Saturday, November 12, 2016.
