Summary
AMAZONS is an artist's book that celebrates women's power by imagining the lives of legendary warrior women. In a world where violence against women is rampant and misogynist ideologies govern, I found solace in Adrienne Mayor's The Amazons: Lives & Legends of Warrior Women Across the Ancient World. The written and visual material in the book was inspired by and derived from Adrienne's dedicated research--Artist's website, viewed July 27, 2017

  • "Ten India ink drawings of Amazons, as well as drawings based on tattoo imagery, were printed letterpress from polymer plates; the text was printed from handset metal and wood type. The main paper is biblio, supplemented by handmade papers from various sources, including Shiramire, Gampi-shi, Mitsumata, St. Armand, Helen Hiebert's abaca, and cotton from Pulp & Deckle. Each book opens with a unique pulp painting of a burial mound, clouds, and carved moon cast in handmade paper, and features a three-color pop up map depicting the names of these nomadic peoples and the regions where they roamed. The paper for the map folio and dedication moon has been hand-dyed using onion skins. The five signatures are sewn on vellum tapes, leaving the spines visible, and a 23k gold-leaf crescent moon adorns the cover, welcoming viewers to explore the book."--Accompanying sheet
