I've wanted to make this book for a very long time. Inspiring women: there are so many of them but history has retained little of what they've had to say. I wanted to do it my way. I made portraits of "unknown" women found in various archives. They all have such beautiful determination. 25 rewarding, stimulating sentences to get us thinking and give us momentum! there is an interactive component to this edition. I created a web page where you will find the links to the 25 women listed.
Artist BioGuylaine Couture lives in Montreal, speaks French, teaches graphic design and shares her discoveries on her blog. She started making artist books after a short bindery workshop some years ago. She has this obsession with creativity and paper for a long time. As a graphic designer, Guylaine is upset by the enormous quantities of paper and words used and abused to push a commercial message. The re-use of printed documents, pieces of photos, and chosen words is a perpetual game for her. Using collage, drawing and manual printing, she tries to give a new direction, a second life to this material. Each book attempts to create a fusion between the contents and the container while questioning the manipulation of the object by the reader. Browse slowly one of its artists' books is an experience, a conversation, a relationship with her and her concerns. She participated in exhibitions in Canada, the United States, in England and Australia.
