LPPL & Åbäke: Come Back, Don’t Come Back

Zine no.18 in the Hato Press Zine series is a collaboration between artist LPPL and Åbäke, a graphic design collective based in East London. “The story started when mommy was saying that we should put some mice traps up and she wanted to kill them because she only likes my teddy mouse. So we started making some immediately but I had always wanted a pet… We made some traps not to kill them, but to catch them but most of them didn’t work. A pest became a pet but no for long as Mushroom, as we called the only mouse we kept, disappeared. Somehow we were sad but also happy. We didn’t see any mice since.”
