Praise for Dead Feminists:
“Dead Feminists is a book for the long haul … simultaneously a finished work of art, a lavish visual representation of an ongoing creative process, and a practical model of how to sustain friendship, creativity, and purpose through a deep sense of history and a commitment to the future.”
— Briallen Hopper, Los Angeles Review of Books
“At once a tale of claiming the process and technology to tell our stories and a history of women, this book introduces us to remarkable women we never knew, and reintroduces us to those we only thought we knew. These dead feminists, so often kept in the shadows, glow with life.”
— Kseniya Thomas & Jessica C. White, authors of Ladies of Letterpress
“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 Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide
“Fierce, feminist, and forceful, the fascinating words and incredible historical images in Dead Feminists brings the stories of these women to life like never before.”
— Sam Maggs, author of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy and Wonder Women
“A very warm welcome to Dead Feminists. The world wants it.”
— Jill Lepore, author of The Secret History of Wonder Woman and Joe Gould’s Teeth
