Les Sabines, a Montréal duo of self-declared cultural entrepreneurs, have produced a series of publications in the form of zines that have appeared at a rate of one per year since 2009. These are visual essays heralding big issues under portentous titles tenuously related to their actual content: L’hyper-réalisme au temps de Napoléon, L’existentialisme est un humanisme II, La post-image. Taking advantage of copyright procedures, Les Sabines get their publications indexed in various international, national, and provincial archives, thus building up an aura of legitimacy.
