"Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
This oversized postcard is a reproduction (offset printed, NOT letterpress) of "End of the Line," 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 the challenges that lie ahead in our time.
The large letterpress poster is now sold out (because it was created in a limited edition, we won't be reprinting the original poster), but this postcard faithfully reproduces the hand-lettered typography and hand-drawn illustrations of the original. The illustration is inspired by the history and folklore of the Underground Railroad. To symbolize the difficult journey faced by anyone with a great task, the words are a bit of a challenge to read. Follow Harriet Tubman's lantern as she guides you along your path.
Harriet Tubman (1820 – 1913) was born Araminta Ross as a slave in Maryland. In 1849 she escaped north traveling via the Underground Railway to Philadelphia. Once free, "Moses" made 19 more round trips—guiding nearly 300 slaves to freedom—and she "never lost a passenger." During the Civil War, Tubman recruited slaves to fight for the Union Army and led the Combahee River expedition to free more than 750 people. After the war she continued to work tirelessly for the rights of women and African Americans.
