March on: Designing Women

by Fred Showker
the letter MMarch is probably one of my favorite months simply because it usually marks the end of winter and begins to see the beginnings of spring. I know that summer isn't too far away! I also love preparing for March, because 18 years ago we decided to begin featuring women in the design, graphics, illustration, photography and other visual arts fields as an adjunct celebration to Women's History Month. So let me share just a few of the "official" links for March ...

We've got several hundred new uploads to the Publishers' Warehouse, including International Designing Women samplers from four continents, including many we see in our regular Designing Women section. And remember : the feature continues through April, along with our "Spring Color" issue.

Hope you enjoy this issue as much as I have.
