I spent a good portion of my twenties indulging a raging roller derby fetish. I watched bouts in tiny retro roller rinks, followed my team to championship tournaments and made a fool of myself at numerous after parties. I was attracted to the energy of the crowd and the culture of unapologetically tough and driven women playing a physically demanding game. And who are we kidding, derby girls are insanely hot. What riot grrrls did for third-wave feminism was what derby offered me, and continues to offer an entire new generation of girls. They deftly maneuver a spectator sport, highlighting the talent and passion of some extraordinary women. I thought my fandom couldn’t grow further, and then I found out about Team USA.

Abortion was not just legal—it was a safe, condoned, and practiced procedure in colonial America and common enough to appear in the legal and medical records of the period. Official abortion laws did not appear on the books in the United States until 1821, and abortion before quickening did not become illegal until the 1860s. If a woman living in New England in the 17th or 18th centuries wanted an abortion, no legal, social, or religious force would have stopped her.

Le Pater is an illustrated edition of The Lord’s Prayer created by Mucha. Published in Paris on 20th December 1899 at the passing of the old century, it was meant to be Mucha’s message to future generations about the progress of mankind. Through the archetypal Christian prayer, he wished to present the way for man to reach the Divine Ideal, the highest state in the spiritual world.
Mucha conceived this project at a turning point in his career. According to his own account, Mucha was at that time increasingly dissatisfied with unending commercial commissions and was longing for an artistic work with a more elevated mission. He was also influenced by his long-standing interest in Spiritualism since the early 1890s and, above all, by Masonic philosophy. In January 1898, almost two years before the publication of Le Pater, Mucha was initiated into the Paris Lodge of Freemasons as an apprentice and after the independence of his homeland he was to become Grand Master of the Freemasons of Czechoslovakia. Mucha’s freemasonry was an outcome of his Spiritualism – the pursuit of a deeper Truth beyond the visible world. Through his spiritual journey Mucha came to believe that the three virtues – Beauty, Truth and Love – were the ‘cornerstones’ of humanity and that the dissemination of this message through his art would contribute towards the improvement of human life and, eventually, the progress of mankind.
In order to visualise his vision, Mucha analysed each of the seven verses of the model Christian prayer and reconstructed it in a set of three pages. The first page of each set, in colour, is the relevant verse in French and Latin, framed in a border sumptuously decorated with flowers and a symbolic female figure. The second page, also in colour, is Mucha’s own text, interpreting the verse and decorated with floral patterns. The third monochromatic page, printed in photogravure, contains a full-page allegorical drawing illustrating Mucha’s philosophical response to the verse. Throughout the pages, Mucha’s designs feature an abundance of Masonic symbols. The outcome was an exquisite book published in an edition of 510 copies.
Le Pater was Mucha’s first manifest as an artist-philosopher and he regarded the book as his finest work. In 1900 Mucha exhibited the book and the preparatory drawings at the Paris International Exhibition and was deeply gratified when the illustrations attracted the attention of Emperor Francis Joseph I.

SINGLE NOTE: SAMPAGUITA
With the wondering eye
Did a tiny fair
Drop you where you lie?
In the witching hour
Of the tropic night
Did the careless moonbeam
Leave you in its fight?
- Natividad Marquez (Ana Maria Chavez)
A symbol of purity, strength, and humility, sampaguita is the national flower of the Philippines, my mother’s homeland.
Heady, yet cool and slightly green: jasmine sambac with a hint of tea leaf.

(YES, there’s something vaguely uncool about dressing up as even a version of a character you write, while you’re writing them. But when you 3 year-old tells you that’s what she wants you to be… don’t be too cool for your 3 year-old. Do it up.
Turns out it’s fun, anyway.)
Trench is from the Gap — years ago — and gauntlets were a gift from an incredibly talented fan. (She made a Hawkeye version too.)
