Sneak Peek – Butch Lesbians of the 20s, 30s, and 40s Coloring Book

BUTCH cover

Coming this June from Stacked Deck Press! The starch of a well pressed shirt, the oiled hair and hint of aftershave, the flash of the pinky ring, and the declarative gaze of the woman who dares to embody such a statement.

Pathologized as Inverts, criminalized as cross dressers, and categorized as perverts, our butch heroines not only survived, but were poets, pilots, speed boat racers. They were proudly butch as women, sometimes passed as men, and all the while endured scrupulous societal gaze.

Beautiful, handsome, and ever charming, these 1920s-1940s Butches await your celebration, your admiration, and, of course, your color schemes.

Cover butch: Frieda Belinfante, a member of the Dutch Resistance during World War II, drawn by Avery Cassell and colored by Jon Macy. Edited by Jon Macy and Avery Garland Cassell. Forward by Sasha T. Goldberg. Drawings by scads of talented artists. More to come!
