Sunday Reading | All Citizens


All Citizens - Book Preview from Serena Marie on Vimeo.

Do any of you remember when I posted about All Citizens? It was circa 2008 and I was attracted by their little zine on Etsy, which pulled me into a tiny rural town shop. I loved their header image (click here to see my original post) and after investigating further, found they had a site, allcitizens.org and a real shop (All Citizens) in a real town (Bruno, Saskatchewan).  To give you a bit of history, if you look at the image further you will understand their name, which compliments the building they are next to, a Senior Citizen's center. The shop was owned by Serena McCarroll and Tyler Brett, fine art artists formerly from Vancouver and ECIAD grads who decided to take advantage of the open spaces that Saskatchewan had to offer and the affordable real estate.  While All Citizens (the brick and mortar)  is no more but recently a book was published about it by Conundrum Press. The book can be purchased from stores across the country & online as well as direct from Conundrum.
