Three-pack of zines
A three-pack of our limited-run 32-page zines features some of our favorite stories. The pack includes: “Small Book of Plants,” “A Beginner’s Guide to Griffith Park” and “Back to Basics.”
The @latimesplants “Small Book of Plants” was created for plant aficionados. This zine features tips and advice from L.A. Times Plants as well as plant comics, memes and features on prominent figures in the Los Angeles plant community.
“A Beginner’s Guide to Griffith Park” is a great resource for exploring, as the zine notes, the perfect place to “reflect on the city and get away from it at the same time.”
In the @latimesfood “Back to Basics" you’ll find fundamental cooking techniques and easy ways to use them through a story and an accompanying recipe. Many recipes are inspired by readers’ real-life cooking dilemmas and questions, while others are skills we think any home cook should master. Cook smarter — and enjoy the fruits with the people you love.
