Reading Cindy Crabb makes me remember that there are magic in words. How truths told simply, written with a certain level of reverence, can add up to something so much bigger. The Encyclopedia of Doris collects a decade of her zine, Doris. The encyclopedia has alphabetized dives into ideas, places, authors, beliefs, ways to imagine the world differently. 

"I started writing a zine because I believed in the power of telling secrets. I believed that so much of our lives were closed up and hidden—the sweet things and the scary things and the small beautiful things and the ways we learned to survive."

322 pages, trade paperback. Illustrated throughout with Cindy's iconic comics.
