Belvü Fanzine


The drawing on the cover of the 1st issue of Belvü Fanzine, was made by Murat Öneş in 1986 This is an illustration for the fairy tale Rapunzel. At the top of the page it says: The tower was in the middle of an endless forest. Belvü Fanzine ,which was inspired by an experience that took place on the top floor of a tall apartment in the middle of an immense city, always used this illustration as a pattern in its cover designs.


Belvü Fanzine was initiated in 2003 by Yasemin Nur Erkalır, Ceren Oykut and Zeyno Pekünlü at Mimar Sinan University, Department of Painting, Tapestry Workshop. The fanzine, designed as a pop-up booklet and assembled by hand after photocopying the parts, is dated and numbered with a stamp. While each artist designed her own page, they also created physical transition areas to another page. We can say that this fanzine is a weaving experiment in which the works are knitted together.



The drawing made by Ceren Oykut on A4 paper records the working process in the Tapestry workshop (winter 2004)
