Advertised as “world’s only magazine for lefthanders,” Lefthander Magazine was published by Lefthanders International, an organization based in Kansas that raises awareness of the needs of left-handed people. It began in 1975 and ran bi-monthly until the late 90s, with a backwards design to accommodate its readers. I made the covers of 6 issues of this magazine into posters, commemorating a unique publication that came at a time when discrimination against left-handed individuals was decreasing.
