Jess Bailey is an art historian, writer, and quilter based in California and in 'Many Hands make a Quilt' has produced a publication that looks at quilting as an activity that sustains and supports radical action. As the blurb recounts "Quilts are tender, fierce, and reliable. They are provocative and reparative. Quilts hold people and stories. As they conform to the unique shape of a body beneath their cascading surface, they affirm the vitality of love and safety. Throughout history, communities have turned to the collective intimacies of quilting in moments of need. This zine tells those stories."
Illustrated throughout by Saffa Khan with additional artwork by Kristyna Baczynski, Maisy Summer, & Alicia Rodriguez.
Published by Common Thread Press, a small, independent publisher that puts feminist, queer and radical histories of art on your bookshelf.
