Audre Lorde Notecards

Chronicle Books

The first authorized collection of notecards from the self-described "Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet" Audre Lorde, featuring four of her iconic quotes with accompanying designed envelopes.

Audre Lorde was an embodiment of convergent identities: poet, feminist, mother, cancer survivor, theorist, and philosopher. The quotes in this notecard set draw from her most essential prose, poetry, theory, and speeches, including Sister Outsider and A Burst of Light. Each notecard is paired with an arresting full-color envelope that features sweeping color blends reflective of ideas central to Lorde's thinking—soft and hard, dark and light, male and female. The collection comes in a striking keepsake box.


Audre Lorde (1934-1992) was a poet, theorist, mother, activist, and intersectional feminist, decades before the term was coined. She published numerous works of poetry, prose, essays, and more in her lifetime, writing through both an emotional and intellectual lens on racism, sexuality, class, and sexism. Her presentations at conferences include such transformative lectures such as "The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action" in 1977 and the "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House" in 1979.
