A Lady's Champion.
Washington, D.C. Jennaway Pearson, 2017. Limited Edition. Hardcover. "Artist Jennaway Pearson plays with the meaning of “champion” in connecting figure skater Tonya Harding with the goddess Juno, protector of women. Despite being a record-breaking skater, Harding was a victim of her family, a demanding sporting organization, a tragic marriage, and an insatiable tabloid culture. Pearson suggests Harding would have benefited from the protection of Juno, whom the Romans saw as presiding over all aspects of a woman’s life."--Artist's statement. Fine in Fine Slipcase. Tight, bright, and unmarred. Black cloth boards, pale blue ink lettering, matching slipcase. 4to. np. Illus. (full page color prints). Numbered limited edition, this being 4 of 10. Item #9550
