IMPRINT COORDINATION BY CHAD JOHNSON
Edition of 100
Letterpress printing, laser cut, eco-printed cover paper
Most of my inspiration and creativity stems from my time spent in nature— a sentiment I share with these four kindred spirits. These women found their life’s passion in the throes of nature. In the pursuit of discovery, they blazed an exacting trail in courage and perseverance in a time when few women were credited for their contributions. I encourage you to seek out the stories of these and other early women scientists, who have paved the way for inquisitive minds to follow.
