In 2008, artists Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring made a letterpress broadside featuring a quote by suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton: “Come, come my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles and see the world is moving.” This began a years-long project printing broadsides inspired by feminists throughout history, and donating a portion of the proceeds to appropriate causes. This book collects all twenty-four broadsides in luscious color. While O’Leary and Spring’s definition of “feminist” is broad at times, they dig deep to feature lesser-known and under-lauded women. Wonderful for budding activists and designers.
