Textured collages flood every page in Sherbanu, a collaborative effort between Linda Zeb Hang and Sean Maung. Photocopied imagery is blown up to serve as red backdrops, with black-and-white figures cropping up in tufts of grass. As a result, Sherbanu provides a salient example of mixed-media collage, and a visually arresting zine that tests the limits of reprographics.
