Susan Sontag on Art: Illustrated Diary Excerpts


Rumpus contributor Wendy MacNaughton has teamed up with Maria Popova (of Brain Pickings) to illustrate selected excerpts from Susan Sontag’s diaries.

The artwork is available on Etsy as an 11×14 print on heavy cotton rag paper with razored edges in a limited edition of 300, signed and numbered, bearing a hand-stamped inscription on the back.

They’re also donating a portion of the proceeds to A Room of Her Own, a foundation for women writers and artists.
