In Spanish, “cita” is the word for appointment, quotation, and date. It is also the diminutive suffix for feminine nouns, mujer is woman; mujercita is little woman.
What: Carefully designed public-domain books written by women in free, contemporary editions for print and web.
How: cita is a collaborative labor of love between designers and writers that relies on public-domain writings and open-source texts, fonts, code, and images. All the content of cita is either public-domain, or is licensed under Creative Commons License CC-NC-SA 4.0, meaning it’s free forever, and sharable for non-commercial purposes so long as you can share if you say who created it. For example, we use Bindery by Evan Brooks. For more details, check the full list of credits.
Why: Women authors have historically been underrepresented and underpublicized in the male-dominated, profit-driven publishing industry. We make these women writers’ works accessible to all, in free editions.
