Fave Femmes

Fave Femmes

In 2009, graphics duo Angela Tillman Sperandio and Samira Bouabana of Swedish design studio Hjarta Smarta traveled to New York to meet with, in their words, "a few lady giants of the designing world." Those conversations laid the groundwork for an insightful new book series for Oyster Press...
highlighting the work of female graphic talents. In the first volume, "Hall of Femmes: Ruth Ansel," the legendary icon dishes on being the first female art director of Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, working with Diana Vreeland and Tina Brown, and her collaborations with famed photographers Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, and Annie Liebowitz. Next up in the "Hall of Femmes" series? Lillian Bassman and Carin Goldberg--out this December--followed by volumes on Maira Kalman, Janet Froelich, and Paula Scher among other giants.
