RECIPES FOR SELF LOVE Feel-good sto­ries for women With beau­ti­ful, witty and some­times hi­lar­i­ous il­lus­tra­tions, Ali­son Rachel aims to dis­rupt main­stream me­dia and high­light ev­ery­day so­cial in­jus­tice through her zines, ti­tled S L I II. Her il­lus­tra­tions are beau­ti­ful and en­gag­ing; each one is ac­com­pa­nied by a quote or thought on self-ac­cep­tance and love. ‘We live in a so­ci­ety that bene ts greatly from peo­ple’s feel­ings of in­ad­e­quacy. The more in­se­cure you are, the more money you are bound to spend to x your­self,’ Ali­son told us. ‘Prac­tis­ing self-love is an on­go­ing jour­ney,’ she says, ‘o en di cult, and we don’t al­ways get it right, but it’s to­tally re­ward­ing and worth­while.’ Read our in­ter­view with Ali­son at @recipes­for­selflove
