Each broadside in the Dead Feminists series features hand-drawn lettering and illustrations.

The power of the press

Our broadsides are letterpress-printed by hand on an antique Vandercook Universal One press.

Carving out a niche

In addition to our letterpress broadsides, we also create other Dead Feminist artwork, from giant linoleum block prints to mini letterpress prints to reproduction postcards.

The Power of the Press

The Dead Feminists series is a collaboration between Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring. The series features quotes by historical feminists, tied in with current political and social issues. Each limited-edition broadside is letterpress printed from hand-drawn lettering and illustrations. A portion of the proceeds of each piece is donated to a cause that aligns with the issue highlighted by the artwork. Jessica and Chandler have released 23 broadsides since the series began in 2008.
