Writer, artist, musician and prolific zine-maker Trinie Dalton has said of her work, "The idea of introducing and contextualizing artists by hanging their art on the same wall is a fundamental one in the art world. To me, my zines are literary/art/music history anthologies, following the group-show or salon style. They're like parties on paper, and I want to be an exquisite host." Dalton's "parties on paper" bring together artists, musicians, critics, novelists, cartoonists and other less-classifiable cultural producers. Mythtym compiles the greatest hits from previous zines, as well as a new, 100-page piece on the subject of mirrors: As symbols in horror stories, psychological metaphors, as material for psychedelic art and the disco ball.
