Human Endeavour: a creative finding aid to the Women of Colour Index

I was commissioned by the Black women's artist research collective, X Marks the Spot (XMTS), to design a book as part of their project on the Women of Colour Index (WOCI). The Index is housed at the Women's Art Library at Goldsmiths, University of London and contains ephemera, exhibition catalogues, press cuttings, and slides of individual artworks and installations created by women of colour in the UK during the "Critical Decades" of the 1980s and 1990s. Human Endeavour is an archival resource that introduces audiences to WOCI and provides a stepping stone for further engagement with the collection. It was published in October 2015 by the Woman's Art Library at Goldsmiths, University of London. You can learn more about XMTS and their research by visiting their Twitter page @x_marks_the.
