LLiLL IV is a 20 page, 5.5 x 8.5″ saddle-stitched zine with a 2-color handset letterpress bookmark! LLiLL – Leftist Leaflets in Little Libraries issue IV documents the installation of an official Little Free Library full of banned classics next to a sign prohibiting the “distribution of literature” and adjacent to an encampment called “Boomtown”. The maintenance of the Little Free Library, as both a location for books but also clean hypodermic needles, leads to a reflection on the issues surrounding “unsheltered” individuals in Denver; addiction, gentrification, the “urban camping ban” and the police facilitated process of removing camps known as “the sweeps.”
