The Inspiration Behind Our Women Writers Leather-Bound

November 12, 2018

Our brand-new Leather-bound title Classic Works from Women Writers is filled with stories from some amazing female authors.

The cover of this gorgeous new Leather-bound was inspired by Evelyn Rumsey Cary's "Woman Suffrage" Poster created in 1905. The painting was used on magazine covers and in pamphlets as well as in poster form to promote women's suffrage. When designing the cover for this title, we knew we wanted an image that was feminine and strong. The team here at Canterbury Classics was inspired by the Women’s Suffrage movement and protest signs, so we researched the political art and protest signs used. We happened to find that image and thought it would be a perfect fit for our cover design!

More about the book:

 

Women writers have been making their voices heard for centuries, but their works were not always taken seriously. Over time, as women gained more social and political freedom, these works have reemerged as subjects that are considered to be worthy of closer study.Classic Works from Women Writers is a collection of more than thirty novels, short stories, poems, and essays by prominent and lesser-known female writers since the 17th century. Included in this volume are groundbreaking works such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; Agatha Christie’s The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the first Hercule Poirot novel; Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” and her follow-up essay; and poetry from the likes of Christina Rossetti, Amy Lowell, and Sara Teasdale. The words of these authors offer a multitude of perspectives on different issues that affect not only women but the wider world as well.

So excited about this book! I’m about to start Frankenstein with my daughter and like to buy a beautiful volume for each book we read together. I was so disappointed that I couldn’t find one last night and this morning there you are! Not only is it gorgeous but it’s multiple important female voices. I can’t wait to give it to her!❤️❤️
