The one resolution that always makes its way on to my New Year's list is: read more books (...and watch more movies, and listen to more music, and see more comedy...) by women. In terms of authors, there's nothing like discovering a writer who knows just how to express everything I'm feeling, while dispensing with those pesky monologues about my gender's lasting inferiority (looking at you, Hemingway). But there are only so many Plath anthologies or Woolf novellas you can read before you start losing steam come February or March.
Enter Joanna Walsh, creator of these fab bookmarks celebrating women writers! Walsh designed this set of curios as a simple way to get your horizon-expanding quest going: each bookmark has a sweet illustration of a well-known female author on the front, and on the back is an expanded list of lesser-known lady writers. The selection is excitingly long and spans centuries and continents - so not only is there something for everyone, but the markers also act as a great way to widen your literary perspective. As of this blog post, the bookmarks aren't for sale to the public - but you can view the list here, and the full set of illustrations here.
