Hi Friend,

With the winter months coming up, we’re adding a new surprise to our Hardware Unlocked Collection today.

A Fiction Hoodie is a beautiful, soft embrace for library lovers, which comes with its own short story by the dystopian author and novelist Missouri Williams.

Buy the hoodie, get the zine 🕯

A Fiction Hoodie


100% organic cotton. Spun, knit, and dyed in Portugal.

A Fiction Hoodie is a heavyweight cotton, classic fit fleece in midnight blue. It features a slogan set in off-white ABC Honeymoon and ABC Gramercy across its face, with special moon and robin glyph detailing.

Square ABC logo label sewn into hood, plus kangaroo pocket, drawstrings, and rib knit hem and cuffs ideal for page-turning.🌛

A Perfect Garden

Risograph printed by friends at Earthbound Press in London and featuring three foundry typefaces. 26 pages, gold ink + four colors with foldout poster. Published by Dinamo Editions.

A hybrid between a WIP notebook, a Hardware catalog, and a dystopian fever dream, A Perfect Garden add a lil'’ destruction to the release of our recent Hardware Unlocked Collection.

Author Missouri Williams — whose work has appeared in The Nation, The Baffler, Granta, and the Believer — transforms our new collection into the subject of a dark fable. In intricate and hallucinatory prose, A Perfect Garden follows its unknown protagonist in their enclosed garden, as they try to protect their world from intruding words, people, and things.

“Inside the garden you have everything you need. You need nothing. And so the garden is empty.”

I’m like a bird *sings*

We designed the new variable wordmark and brand typeface for Patreon. Lots of uppercase softness paired with ABC Oracle for smooth reading. Liz at It’s Nice That wrote a little story on the new identity overhaul.

That’s everything. See you next time.
