Greetings from Rainbow Falls

Greetings from Rainbow Falls flirts with retro nostalgia, tiki culture and vacation aesthetic. It reads as a vintage-inspired travel guide/summer mag for young women apathetic to everyday life, complete with directions on how to bring the holiday to you. There were a mix of Aucklandisms (Piha beach and Rare Books on High St) mixed with Americanisms (thrift stores and knapsacks) that I found interesting - this could be credited to the two authors or perhaps influenced by the content the discuss within the zine? This zine features lists, retro mix-tape playlists, film reviews about bored/lonely people, “girls on adventures” and photos with a disposable camera feel. Overall I found this zine very sweet, maybe even something that Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom might pack in her suitcase of books (if she was into zines).
