Sew Your Own Protection, Monica Johnson (2020); three-color Risograph print on Hosho paper; 12 x 18 inches; Signed and numbered edition of 20.

Handmade masks have largely been a grassroots effort lead by women worldwide, and we applaud all of them for helping to flatten the curve. Even while the CDC warned the public against wearing protective face masks because it gave a “false sense of security,” the sewing continued on and countless numbers of people were protected as a result. Johnson, herself, has sewn and distributed over 300 masks to home birth aids, ER nurses, essential workers, and “high-risk” individuals since March 2020.

Hosho paper is a traditional, high-quality, strong, and absorbent paper.  Handmade in Japan, 100% Sulphite Pulp, dried on stainless steel, no sizing.
