The Washington Post has relaunched The Lily, and I got to do this for them. I carved the masthead (done by eye) and waited for the tide to take it.
The Lily was the USA's first woman's newspaper, edited by and for women. It ran for a few years back in the bad old days of the mid-1800's. I guess you could say the tide washed it off one beach back then but the digital era has it reappearing on your tablet. ;-) The original Lily was dedicated to "the Emancipation of Woman from Intemperance, Injustice, Prejudice, and Bigotry." The Wikipedia article also says "The Lily carried articles not only on women's suffrage but also on major social reform issues such as property rights, education, employment, dress reform, and slavery, including women's slavery to men." If that's the sort of colour the modern iteration is nailing to the mast, then I'm proud to have been involved in this small way.
