Institute 193 has consigned several titles from the Atlanta Contemporary for our ongoing retail pop-up SUMMER SHOP, including this artist zine by Patti Belle Hastings, first published in 1985. In a format that resembles a paper sample booklet, SERIF(im) uses the pun in its title as the starting point for a metaphysical ramble through a world of angels, monsters, animals, and the printed word.
