Jenny Lin is launching her new pop-up book Skinny Leg during the conference Comics and Medicine: Navigating the Margins, in Toronto. Lin's book narrates her experience of being run over by a truck while biking and the subsequent recuperation, blending clinical descriptions with personal accounts. According to Lin, "what is revealed is the strangeness and banality of the
experience as well as the mutability of memory."
BUY SKINNY LEG, THE ZINE VERSION, HERE.
Each book was meticulously made by hand and there are only 25 copies available.

Lin also published a zine version of Skinny Leg (a softcover book without pop-ups). You can buy it here.
