IlluminAsia 2017 was a celebration of Smithsonian's Freer|Sackler's reopening and the DMV Asian-American community. I was asked to create a zine activity accessible to attendees of all ages, so I collaborated with some local AAPI food businesses (and ganked one of my mom's recipes) to create this DIY zine cookbook! Attendees could pick a standard, color-your-own, or draw-your-own cover and assemble their own zine cookbook to take home after decorating the cover to their heart's content.
