Praise for The Post-Structuralist Vulva Coloring Book:
"Local illustrator Meggyn Pomerleau’s The Post-Struturalist Vulva Coloring Book offers pages featuring female genitalia in creative contexts such as a wave in the ocean or as the mouth of a shark." –Portland Monthly
"Even if you don’t like coloring, you’re going to love this book. It is creative, inventive, and down right fun!" –Samantha Heuwagen, A Feminist Life
"Demystifies and celebrates women’s bodies while simultaneously critiquing patriarchal institutions. " –Robin Swallows, SluttyGirlProblems.com
The Post-Structuralist Vulva Coloring Book demystifies gender and interrogates your assumptions as you are drawn into its mesmerizing patterns, folds, and whorls. By overwhelming the senses with vulvas, you can easily deconstruct the meaning and very existence of this social construct we call the "vulva" and the instructions for living that come with it. Quotations from post-structuralist philosophers accompany the art and can be colored and even edited into new constructs and critiques. Perfect for the recovering graduate student who wants to deconstruct gender without being themselves dismantled by the tools of deconstruction.
