Providing a new and illuminating look at 27 women who've changed the world, Dead Feminists ties these historical women and the challenges they faced into the most important issues of today. Based on the cult-following limited edition Dead Feminists letterpress poster series by illustrator Chandler O'Leary and letterpress artist Jessica Spring, the book combines new art and lettering, archival photographs and ephemera, and revisits the original poster to tell each woman's story.

This book takes feminist inspiration to a new level of artistry and shows how ordinary and extraordinary women have made a difference throughout history (and how you can too!).
