Diane Jacobs: "AMAZONS is an artist's book that celebrates women's power by imagining the lives of legendary warrior women. In a world where violence against women is rampant and misogynist ideologies govern, I found solace in Adrienne Mayor's The Amazons: Lives & Legends of Warrior Women Across the Ancient World. The written and visual material in the book was inspired by and derived from Adrienne's dedicated research. "[There are] ten India ink drawings of Amazons, as well as drawings based on tattoo imagery, … Each book opens with a unique pulp painting of a burial mound, clouds, and carved moon cast in handmade paper, and features a three-color pop up map depicting the names of these nomadic peoples and the regions where they roamed." "Three percent of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Planned Parenthood, with another three percent going to Honor the Earth to support the warriors fighting for Native environmental justice, sovereignty self-determination, and the preservation of Mother Earth.
