4.3: General Projects, circa 1976-1989
This subseries consists of general publicity projects for the Woman's Building and miscellaneous projects that the Woman's Graphic Center was commissioned to do by various individuals, universities, and businesses. The projects for others, which the Center helped design, include novels (the Center designed the covers) and assorted printed material for businesses and universities - usually in the form of brochures, event announcements, business cards, stationary, advertisements, and other material. These outside projects were not connected to Woman's Building events. The rest of the Woman's Graphic Center projects consist of event calendars, brochures, posters, and announcements exclusively for the Woman's Building.
