    Thanks for the GG reminder! I love them so. I tried to give my teenage niece a copy of their Bimbos and Ballbreakers years ago and my sister nixed it, alas.

    The collectors letter just made me look around my apartment at my art collection (all emerging artists, most of whom I know, one of the perks of being an emerging artist myself is trading) and I’m relieved to see it’s about 50/50 women/men. Phew.

      I did the same quick scan of my apartment. I’m not sure I qualify as an art collector (do lovingly framed prints from museum stores count?) but women artists actually dominate my collection, which I hadn’t ever thought about. I’m especially happy that it happened that way naturally.
