Cocoon is a zine that I created about the albums that helped people through the Covid-19 lockdowns.
Each of the essays inside – covering everything from Nick Drake to Lady Gaga – is about a particular record that cheered the writer up when things seemed at their worst.
Cocoon also contains original illustrations by Scottish artist Katy Smail.
All profits from sales of the first zine, which totalled over £1300, were donated to Scottish Women's Aid and The Black Curriculum.
50% of profits from the second issue were donated to We Belong, an organisation that seeks to end thw hostile environment around immigration in the UK.
Cocoon is available at stockists across the UK.
