SHE is a beautiful boxed set of 100 art postcards featuring illustrations inspired by women writers. From Sappho’s ancient callto-action, ”become a voice,” to Virginia Woolf’s call for intellectual freedom in A Room of One’s Own, these foundational writers had a remarkable impact on future generations, and made us question, think, rebel, and laugh.
