from 15.00

In memory of the medicinal wisdom and violent economies that bring us Valentines Day roses.

A lil zine centralizing some of my research to date on the intersection of the rose and coca industry in the legacy and recovery of the war on drugs in Colombia—as well as ancestral uses of these herbs as medicine.


  • An short essay

  • Two printed photographs

  • Coca Leaf Monograph

  • Rose Monograph

  • Ancestral Uses Medicinal Uses

  • Comprehensive timelines of the globalization of these plants in legal and underground markets

  • A History of the Colombian Conflict 101

  • Land Substitution Programs Transitioning from 

In a nod to Arundhati Roy's book “Capitalism: A Ghost Story”, this zine highlights the ghosts pervading the rose industry in the ways in which they wronged by US’s favorite love stories— American dream, capitalist progress & conquest, etc etc.
