Typewriter marks end of original story

We proposed an issue on Lesbian media. It was going to be issue No. 7. The magazine folded before we could publish it, which is a great shame. Irene Young took these amazing photographs so at least we have this stunning graphic.

How amazing to click on a link to this site that a Minneapolis friend posted on facebook and find a beautiful photo of the first logo (on a T-shirt) I did for 'A Woman's Coffeehouse' in Minneapolis! So many decades ago and in a NY publication. What a blast (not to mention blast from the past). The first design I submitted to the coffeehouse collective had short hair and they had me give her more hair so she wouldn't look too butch! Thanks for posting this archive. I look forward to perusing it more and remembering those times. What an interesting era it was to come of age!

Amazing! I'm so happy that you found the site and that you wrote. I've always loved that t-shirt. The graphic is lovely. Funny about the hair. I like it though. Is this the first time you've seen the picture? You didn't see it at the time. So sorry. We tried to contact everyone but it wasn't always easy.

Now I can at least give you credit!! And do let us know what you are doing now.

cheers. Liza

PS: It was my shirt. Alix Dobkin and I used to collect shirts wherever we went on tour, and I had lots of them. This was one of my favorites.
