This vibrant 'zine, combining features, photos, recipes, games, poetry, and illustrations, is a fundraiser for a project that supports businesses in New York City's many Chinatowns, all of which have been devastated by the global pandemic as well as surges in anti-Asian sentiment.
Produced in a limited release, it includes contributions from an impressive array of New Yorkers who understand the vital importance of these neighborhoods and communities, including Omsom Co-founder, Kim Pham, illustrator & graphic designer, Naomi Otsu, New York Times photographer Poupay Jutharat, chef Hannah Wong, street artist & muralist Peach Tao, and many others.
The portrait that emerges is poignant and yet often exuberant, demonstrating a resilience that deserves support.
100% of the proceeds that Send Chinatown Love raises from this effort will "will go directly to providing need-based financial assistance and business improvement services for struggling AAPI merchants that continue to recover from the adverse effects of COVID-19."
In addition, Kitchen Arts & Letters will contribute $5.00 per copy sold to their endeavors.
Paperback. Full-color throughout.
