The Sticky Institute is all about zine culture. Think Richard Neville and Martin Sharp, think counterculture, think 1960’s underground press. And indeed, a small shop aptly located in the Melbourne underground - Campbell Arcade - Sticky’s will transport you back into an era of badge-making, typewriters, and print with attitude. Spend a couple of hours of your Saturday perusing the shelves which are stocked with independent zine titles.
Sticky is shop 10 in Campbell Arcade, Degraves Subway. It’s the old retail arcade under Flinders St station. You can access it from the subway stairs on Flinders Street near Degraves Street.

Ahhh The Sticky Institute is so magical. I wish I’d spent more time there.
Poe Visualized by Harry Clarke
From the 1919 deluxe edition of Edgar Allen Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination, Harry Clarke reached deep into those dark, flinching corners underneath the bed and ripped out the grotesque horrors that lurked within, creating these macabre illustrations that accompanied Poe’s disturbing classics like “The Pit and the Pendulum” and the “The Telltale Heart” perfectly. In the same vein as Stephen Gammell’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark monstrosities decades later, these illustrations are sufficient evidence that while some stories can be even more frightening when left to your imagination, it takes a truly visceral artist to give those shadows form and really scare the bejeezus out of you.
