The Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book has arrived. Travel through time with Stacked Deck Press and meet real life butches from around the world in this new release, part of the historical butch lesbian series. There are barroom butches, marrying butches, activist butches, cross-dressing car thief butches, punk butches, baby butches, debutante butches, publishing butches, and more. There are butch mothers, political activists, feminists, scene-stealers, filmmakers, girlfriend-stealers, writers, photographers, opium smokers, librarians, and renegades gracing these pages. Building upon the success of The Butch Lesbians of the 20s, 30s, and 40s Coloring Book, and the ensuing community coloring parties held throughout the US, Avery Cassell and Jon Macy usher their readers into the 50s, 60s, and 70s with an embarrassment of butch riches. The Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book offers not only a love letter to mid-century Butches, but a detailed map to our bold and beautiful history. Grab your crayons or pencils, color our glorious butches, then turn to the bibliography for pages of detailed, juicy, and inspiring biographical details, along with suggestions for further reading for every butch represented.
