I'm having a near-religious experience reconnecting with this book at @phoglo 's house. It was hugely important to me when I was forming, it was like a bible, or more appropriately a pantheon of female powers to learn from and draw on, and somehow I almost forgot. But here it is, returning at the most perfect moment possible to bring me home to the archetypes that matter. And, I had no idea that Phoebe Gloeckner (in whose home I am staying), one of my main comics goddesses, did the cover! Some snaps of the women most important to me here: Diamanda Galas; Annie Sprinkle as half slut-half goddess; an image from Carolee Schneeman's "Meat Joy"; and Susie Bright. #REsearchbooks#angrywomen

I get my inspiration from words, phrases, pictures & people. Also from songs & films & dreams and anything in between.
I have a collection of research books (mostly really large old sheet music ones but also a few pocket sized that I can travel with) which I fill with scraps of images from books & magazines. I started them about 25 years ago & currently have 30 of them (it used to be more but they were randomly put together so I've decided to take them apart and theme them)
