Holy Nonsense 2020 Edition

After significant delays, only some of which were related to the global crisis in the titular year, Holy Nonsense 2020 was finally released to the public on July 23, 2021. This 250 page pdf (500 content pages in side-by-side spreads) contains work by over 90 contributors, covering themes relevant to our current strange times such as “identity,” “perspective,” “love,” and “assholes.” Over 35% new content by volume compared to the 2017 edition, Holy Nonsense 2020 also includes critical content and style updates and accessibility features.

Holy Nonsense works are released as pages or page blocks. A full list of every work included in Holy Nonsense 2020 is linked here.
