Printed in an edition limited to 195 copies. An introduction by Sandra Kroupa. This project was sparked by Faye's exploration on how and why women became printers and the obstacles they overcame on their journey to this end in the late nineteenth-century. In an effort to rectify the unbalanced representation of women in the study of printers, Faye sent out an open invitation for samples to be included in this seminole publication. This book includes samples from 39 lady printers. The collection represents not only a broad range of experience and types of presses used, it also contains work from women who print for different purposes - as a hobby, to create art pieces, to engage job work and as fine press publishers. The introduction by Kroupa traces the history of women printers from the seventeenth century on. Special attention is paid to interpreting the work of the contemporary printers represented in this collection. Text and images printed in many colors on a variety of papers. Several samples signed by the printer. Title page printed in red and black. Bound in Japanese cloth by Jules Remedios Faye. An eclectic, fascinating and, above all, unique collection.
