The Philosopher Queens: We have a little announcement for you…

Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged so far and shown their support for the book. We never imagined reaching 20% within the first week and it gives us hope that so many people want this book to exist as much as we do. Please do continue to post and share as much as you can!

Now with the emotional stuff out of the way, we have an exciting announcement for you. Not only is our book written by amazing women, but it’s also being ILLUSTRATED by one! Each chapter of the book will feature an illustration of the Philosopher Queen themselves by the amazing Emmy Smith. 

Emmy Smith (Little by Lupin) is a wonderful artist specialising in digital illustrations of the female form, inclusion and positivity. Expect styling to use pastel tones, patterns, fine lines and hand lettering. We are so excited to have her working on the book. 

Emmy will also be creating our limited edition print which you will get when you purchase ‘the full philosopher’ pledge level. You can check out her other work on her website, Instagram or Etsy.
