This text examines three decades of work by the artist, Nancy Spero. Her subject matter, the depiction of women, has ranged from the writings of Artaud to the Vietnam war. She collages and imprints her images of contemporary goddesses onto long papyrus-like friezes that scroll around walls, combining totemic figures with mythological and historical chronicles. This book also includes Spero's own writings many of which are published for the first time.
