Hall of Femmes
Hall of Femmes: Ruth Ansel is the first in a series of books highlighting leading female designers by producing books, lectures and exhibitions. This ongoing project was founded by Swedish graphic design duo Hjärta Smärta.
The first publication features the legendary art director Ruth Ansel, one of the first female art directors. In the 60's, when she was just 24, she and Bea Feitler became co-art directors of Harper's Bazaar, in the 70's she was the art director of The New York Times Magazine, and in the 80's Vanity Fair. Every time she was the first woman in the position she had.
Celebrate female creativity and leadership this Thursday at Danziger Projects in New York for Hall Of Femmes launch and book signing event.
