Broadsides

The Dead Feminists series is a collaboration between artists Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring. The series features quotes by historical feminists, tied to 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 25 broadsides since the series began in 2008.
