Issue #10, Summer 1999
Art Director: Benjamin Shaykin

Game boards have always served as metaphors for life (like, well, the game of Life). And the lives of contemporary women in a supposedly "postfeminist" world resonate loudly in game-board format, with all of the one-step-forward, two-steps-back challenges of reaching parity and equality. This cover took into account many of the imperatives, assumptions, and indignities of modern ladyhood, and also paid homage to the graphically compelling board-game classics of our youths.
Our 15th-anniversary series prints offer something for every taste. Featuring some of our favorite covers from Bitch's 15-year history, the limited-edition prints offer gorgeous photos, cool illustrations, nifty typography, and lots of color to perk up your living space. All 15 designs are archival giclee* prints on high-quality, heavy watercolor paper, and are suitable for framing. And if you just can't decide, maybe you need more than one — after all, they'll look pretty great hanging side by side.
*A very high-quality, archival inkjet print that creates very fine detail and vivid color, used by artists to reproduce work with a high degree of integrity to the original.
