The Ripley Effect is a project inspired by the first Female Action Heroine in Science Fiction film, Ellen Ripley, from the popular film franchise Alien.
The project aims to celebrate the women of Science Fiction and Action film that have followed in her footsteps, provide fans with a site to learn more about their favourite female leads, and educate viewers on characters they may not be familiar with.
So far, ten Sci-Fi and Action characters have been selected for the project - each one has been hand-illustrated and risograph printed on to three tear off posters, each breaking apart into four separate postcards. These hand-made fluorescent postcard designs feature some of the most iconic sci-fi women of the last 40 years! The postcards have been placed into a perforated poster book, screw bound on and printed on 220gsm cartridge paper.
