Nonsense Zine

Finally, Ginnungagap is back. Second release of 2015 is actually a reprint. It's not exactly a limited edition, but chances are that I will be tired of hand painting them at some point.

Order it via Webshop, or come buy it in person at Volumes Independent Publishing Fair 2015 in Zurich.


Finally, Ginnungagap is back. Sorry for the lack of Updates.

The Rabbit On The Back Of An Elephant – Travel Sketches
was released in October and people who came to my last solo exhibition have already seen it :) Now it's also available in the Webshop, and you can buy it in person at Volumes Independent Publishing Fair 2015 in Zurich.


Preview: The Rabbit On The Back Of An Elephant | Rina Jost
Release: Autumn 2015

Little booklet containing a selection of my b/w travel sketches from Moscow to Shanghai. These travel sketches (made on location) were also the source of inspiration for my first comic book. Since they are not longer part of the book, I thought they deserve their own small presentation.


Small Press Heaven Fumetto 2015

First weekend is over, but we are there again next weekend. Visit us and Fumetto:

Sa. 14. März, 10.00 – 20.00 Uhr
So. 15. März, 10.00 – 18.00 Uhr

There is plenty to see. Lots of fanzines, screenprints and limited editions from all over Europe, don't miss! (I've been shopping myself, as you can see <3)


Happy New Year everybody :) I know, I'm late (though a bit early
for chinese new year) but I just realized that I never posted previews
of the lovely postcard set Sarah Gasser made for Ginnungagap.

I've been working on a book project for a year now, and there will be updates soon and probably an exclusive print run for Ginnungagap, so stay tuned! Some work in progress on my personal tumblr or my website.

Take care!
