The end of 2017 has been a very busy time for me, and I'm excited to announce that I have not one, but *two* books out in the world this week!
The first is my recent release Fifty Feminist Mantras. This book began as a series of weekly blog/Instagram posts last fall and blossomed into a year-long project that I just wrapped. I wrote 50 mantras for the project, then edited and compiled them for this book.
Inside, there are fifty feminist mantras arranged by week and season. with the purpose of helping readers embrace feminisms and themselves as feminists. Each mantra includes guided reflection and writing prompts, and the idea is that meditating on each mantra will help readers embrace feminisms and themselves as feminists.
You can purchase the book here!
I've also just finished a special edition zine to accompany my friend Amanda Roscoe Mayo's new exhibition at The Franklin, Art of Sight, Sense of Feeling.
The exhibition is inspired by Edwin Abbott's book Flatland, and I used the text as inspiration to create a zine that emphasized the multidimensionality of art, even in 2D forms. This was a really fun project where I got to delve back into my past five years of zine-making and revisit old art store haunts to find papers and pens that connoted the dimensions I was hoping to invoke.
You can find copies at The Franklin at 3522 W Franklin Blvd in Chicago!
