Dead Feminists takes feminist inspiration to a new level of artistry and shows how ordinary and extraordinary women have made a difference throughout history (and how you can too).
I first came across Chandler O'Leary and Jessica Spring's series of gorgeous letterpress printed broadsheets, Dead Feminists, when they did one featuring one of my knitting heroes — Elizabeth Zimmermann. This book collects the series alongside profiles of the women and moments in history that inspired each one and background information on their process. Type, hand-printing, craft and feminist history? Oh yes.
