This publication features zines by ten artists from the Philippines. 

A layered experiment in tropical art samizdat, collectivized cultural production, liberating the means of production, creating equal profit opportunities (alternatives to exploitation in the cultural assembly line), and in decolonization via cottage industry print and Xerox. 

Published by Hardworking Goodlooking, the publishing branch of The Office of Culture and Design (The OCD). Since December 2010, The OCD has functioned as a platform for artists, designers, writers, and projects that investigate solutions primarily for developing world issues. In 2013, they opened Hardworking Goodlooking, a publishing, and design studio, to consolidate the results of their experiments—and the experiments of others—in print and other formats.
