The Life of Margaret Elizabeth Cousins
In this project I used experimental typographic devices to illustrate some of the hardships faced by Margaret Cousins, an Irish suffragette, during her quest for equal rights for men and women in Ireland. The reduced broadsheet size and the long columns of body text within a six column grid where designed to emulate that of a publication called, ‘The Irish Citizen’, a weekly newspaper used by the Irish suffragettes from 1914 - 1922 to communicate the activity of the Irish Women’s Franchise League.
