Nu Shu

For a project in progress i did this hand rendered type. The quote beside a sister one does not despair is a quote which chinese women would say when talking about their laotong, this was a friendship matchmaked for them. They would share many likes and i think this quote represents there friendship through times where they would have to write nu shu the only communication they had. Nu shu is fastinating as women for a thousand years kept the writing of nu shu a secret, no man had never heard or seen of it until the cutural revolution where most documents were destroyed. Now there is only 1 person who can still write Nu Shu.
