Steno Pool by Kimberly Kight for Cotton + Steel


Quilting Cottons > Steno Pool by Kimberly Kight for Cotton + Steel
Steno Pool was inspired by shorthand, which was widely used for taking dictation in the pre-computer age. Kim was struck not only by the beauty of shorthand, but the fact that it was a code taught to and used primarily by women. Though it is a secretarial skill and therefore associated with pre-women’s liberation, Kim imagined a world where shorthand could be used for subversion against the glass ceiling … or maybe even espionage? Kim gathered vintage prints with a ‘40s vibe and brought them together with a film-noir inspired color scheme. The prints are secretarial on the surface, but hold secrets if you look closely.
