LAURA MOSELEY

FOUNDER

Hello! My name is Laura and I am the Founder of

Common Threads Press. 

I graduated from the University of York in July 2019

in BA History of Art, during which I started making these zines about women artists I'd discovered

during my studies. I felt that there were many

women and queer artists who were being ignored or forgotten about during the course of Art History. I wanted a way to share all of my research that was easy to read, and accessible in cost, and I have been a fan of zines for a long time, so it made perfect sense!

What started as zines about women artists has evolved into printing zines about a wide range of topics within art history. I hope to keep uplifting different voices and perspectives in art history and help others make their own zines.

As of September 2020 I am completing a Master's degree at University College London in History of Art. In my spare time I like to read, watch films, quilt, weave and try different creative activities!
