Short stories

"Gemüsebedarf" is a collection of four humorous short stories that revolve around the theme of food, particularly vegetables and fruits.

"Gemüsebedarf" is a charming zine that features four short stories about food, illustrated with watercolors and playful text-art. Eva Fenz's tales depict her life in both Vienna and Carinthia, spanning from her childhood and youth to adulthood. Her stories offer a unique perspective, providing an engaging and personal glimpse into her experiences.

Fenz devoted over four weeks of work to creating this zine. In addition to meticulously designing and laying out each page, she translated and reworked the text-art into English. The inspiration for this project struck her during her two-month stay in Istanbul, where she felt a bit homesick. It was there that she began to write the stories that would become the heart of this zine.
