We love finding out about what past contributors are getting up to, especially when it involves a great collaboration! Amazing Babes is the brainchild of Eliza Sarlos, who originally created the book for her son, so that he would grow up admiring people who have done incredible things, regardless of gender. She wisely got Grace Lee on board to illustrate some of the many women – from a wide range of backgrounds – who have influenced her throughout her life. Eliza and Grace just started a crowdfunding campaign to raise enough money to do a small print run, and 11 hours in, they made their target! But they would still love your support to get the book out to a wider audience, and hopefully get it into bookshops – so click here to pre-order your copy (or choose one of the other great rewards).
