Edith Stevens Archive
Role: Creative Director, Designer, Writer
This overview brochure highlights the work and influence of Edith Stevens, one of the first women cartoonists working at a major daily newspaper in the United States. Her strip, entitled Us Girls, debuted in The Boston Post and appeared almost continuously from 1929 until the early 1960s.
Us Girls reflected the fashion trends, hairstyles, and social manners of generations of women in a humorous, sometimes biting, but accessible way. Her sketches held up the mirror to her readership with a sharp and comical delivery. Her warmth, wit, and humor resonated and Us Girls quickly built a multi-generational fan base that lasted decades.
