Dead Feminists: Historic Heroines in Living Color
Written and illustrated by Jessica Spring and Chandler O' Leary (who has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design), Dead Feminists is the perfect book for any student or fan of history, art, or the mark of the printing press. Based on the beloved letterpress poster series of the same name, Dead Feminists interweaves intricate broadside art with archival photographs and ephemera, well-researched history, and an introduction by Jill Lepore.
“Dead Feminists offers well-researched and meticulously illustrated insight into some of America’s inspiring historic heroines—but it also goes way beyond that. This book is a profound and super-smart look at feminist craft, creation, and collaboration, and reminds us that what goes on behind the scenes can be just as powerful as the finished product. I am so grateful to Chandler and Jessica for allowing us into their radical world.”
—Kate Schatz, author of the New York Times bestseller Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide
