"The Audacity of Growth" is a quarter size, full color perzine about weird nervous restlessness. Sil describes it at "the inbetween space" and I have to agree—reading through this zine left me with more of a feeling rather than a message. It's a little bit uncomfortable and sad, but I think that those are certainly topics/moments worthy of exploration. I really love the layout of this zine—the pages don't line up exactly, the full color photographs are bright and beautiful, and the boxed-in text really stands out. The images are all nature-oriented (animals, mushrooms, landscapes) and when combined with sil's text, they really make you want to slow down and take some time to reflect on growing as a person—whatever that might mean to you.
