"A series of books that acted like arts grants. When a patron purchased a zine, it payed for one month's worth of coffee, and allowed me to loiter in the coffee shop from 7–8:30 a.m. every weekday while I read and wrote. CMZ sponsors received 30 days of drawings. The concept for each book was different, with the patron supplying a title or vague idea." by artist and illustrator Ray Fenwick
