CAKE DEBUT: Good to Know by Isabella Rotman
Good To Know is a tiny zine of useful information by Isabella Rotman. Topics include how to build a campfire, some ways to purify water, plants to avoid, a very good plant to know, how to find the north star, how to open a bottle without a corkscrew, how to improvise a dental dam, some very useful knots, how o break into stuff, how to jump a car, and how to change a tire. This zine is cute and pocket sized, so you can easily carry it with you to be prepared for most minor emergencies. In conjunction with this zine, Isabella Rotman will be selling "Damsel In Distress Kits" which are basically just Altoid tins filled with a bunch of incredibly useful things, like safety pins, needle and thread, a tiny pocket knife. The Damsel in Distress Kits come with a zine, but get there fast, she is only bringing 20 of them. Isabella Rotman is a cartoonist and illustrator from Maine living and drawing in Chicago. Her art is usually about the ocean, mermaids, crushing loneliness, people in the woods, or sex. You can find her at table 78.
