Windy & Wallflower Kiosque   A09

Windy & Wallflower is a collaborative effort between two queer creators: Winter Jay Kiakas and Tas Mukanik. It began as with the two of us coming together and collaborating on a few works, and eventually blossomed into a full-fledged independent company! We especially enjoy writing and creating stories—be that through comics, prose, or something in-between—and printing them in beautiful books to really let them shine. We put a lot of love into every process of our books, right up into printing them in the best quality. As queer creators, we also always seek to involve queer identities in them in any way we can.
