Metamorphoses is an art zine reflecting on Ovid's Metamorphoses and the fates of women in Greek & Roman mythology.

It is filled with original collages (made from a wide variety of public domain archival material) by Emma Hambly and illustrations by Niko Dalcin. The zine follows the structure of Ovid's 8 CE poem and seeks to center the stories of iconic female characters in Greek mythology, such as Circe, Daphne, and Echo, who are often reduced to objects or victims.

Quotations from the original poem (by female speakers) and from historical women poets (Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Phillis Wheatley, and Augusta Webster) interplay with the imagery.

About the project: Ban/She is the artistic partnership of Niko Dalcin and Emma Hambly. We make comics, zines, art, and a lot of screeching noises.
