"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
This oversized postcard is a reproduction print of "Victory Garden," part of the ongoing Feminist Broadside series. This piece is a collaboration between Chandler O'Leary of Anagram Press and Jessica Spring of Springtide Press, in honor of sustainability, and the changes happening at the White House.
The original broadside was released in December 2008, just a few months before First Lady Obama's new White House vegetable garden began. (We're taking a sliver of credit for being a part of that movement!)
The letterpress poster is now sold out, but this postcard faithfully reproduces the hand-lettered typography and hand-drawn illustrations of the original.
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) transformed the role of first lady in the White House, where she served from 1933-1945. In an effort to cultivate self-sufficiency and patriotism, she planted a Victory Garden on the White House lawn. Spurred in part by the first lady's example, more than 20 million Americans had home gardens and grew 40% of the country's produce during World War II. Today, amid rising food prices, climate change, and the finite supply of fossil fuels, we encourage the next first lady, Michelle Obama, to follow in Eleanor Roosevelt's footsteps and set an example for sustainability and hope once more—beginning on the White House lawn.
Postcard size: 5 x 8 inches
