• Image of Handy Girl (Figure No. 57)

This print is part of the Handy Girl Series, inspired by an old book called "The Handy Boy." With a slight alteration of the text, juxtaposed with illustrations of females, the viewer is asked to reconsider the meaning of the book from the viewpoint of women.

The text reads: "The Handy Girl girl soon overcomes the awkwardness of camp underfoot, because having already learned resourcefulness, she'll quickly adapt to new surroundings."

Designed and letterpress printed on a Vandercook 4 by Amy Redmond using handset metal type, overprinted on a tone block and a linocut image. Ships flat.
