I am so very thrilled to announce the launch of The Reconstructionists — a yearlong celebration of remarkable women who have changed the way we see the world. Every Monday in 2013, project collaborator Maria Popova and I will publish an illustrated portrait (by me) of one trailblazing woman (artist, scientist, writer), along with a hand-lettered quote that captures her spirit and a short micro-essay (by Maria) about her life and legacy. The project is housed on its own blog.
To launch the project, we’re starting with four entries: Anaïs Nin, Gertrude Stein, Hedy Lemarr and Agnes Martin (normally there will be just one entry per week). Stay tuned on Monday, Janaury 14 for the next entry, and Monday, January 21 for the next, and so on every Monday over the course of 2013.
I’d like to thank Maria for her continued dedication to this project (she is one of the most hard working, committed, passionate people I have ever met or worked with) and Kelli Anderson, equally as talented and committed, who designed our beautiful website.
To the celebration of remarkable women!
