The Dog & the Sailor: Ltd. Edition Zine
This is a bound, 28 page, landscape format A5 Zine, limited to just 500 copies ever made. Printed with a silk 300gsm cover. Each Zine is individually numbered, and delivered to you in a hardback envelope.
This Zine was created by the author and illustrator to accompany his graduate exhibition from an MA in illustration at Falmouth University in 2020. Pete’s final piece was an online exhibition featuring his version of “The Dog and the Sailor” - a lost LGBTQ+ Fairy Tale told anew in English for the first time in an original adaptation by Pete. The exhibition and Pete’s discovery of the tale was featured in Forbes.
This Zine includes Pete’s original version of The Dog and the Sailor created for his final university showcase, and his original illustrations.
The Zine also includes Pete’s final MA dissertation, “Where is my Prince Charming? On Queer visibility in Fairy Tales” which details his research into the history of “The Dog and the Sailor” tale type as he tracks down its variants across Europe. The essay also features a bibliography of all references cited which may be useful to academic researchers who want to dig deeper into the fairy tale’s fascinating past. Pete was shortlisted as a finalist in 2020 for the Folklore Society’s annual award for folklore research.
This is the only publication to feature Pete’s research, sources and his original, illustrated version of the story. When all copies of this Zine are sold out, it will not be reproduced and it is therefore a collector’s item.
