Carol Es is a Los Angeles zinester, artist, writer and musician who published The Planet Es (1996-1998) that included art, poetry, essays and rants that were created in the wee hours on special 2-cent nights at Kinkos in Studio City. All the art was color xeroxed, hand cut and glue-sticked in this 8.5 x 7 inch booklet.
The 7-issue zine began in 1995 as the Planet Es Newsletter to promote an on-going novella that was released a chapter at a time. It also promoted her first 3 chapbooks of poetry, short stories and art: Angelic Hell Stories of Torment and the Like (1993), Daily Deaths and Gumballs (1994), and Junkslacker (1995), and was used as a Call to Artists for the following issues.
Her most recent handmade book, 1-SELF was purchased by the Getty's Research Library. She is currently working on a new edition of 20 books called All Done But None.
