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 an illustration of a female, the viewer is asked to reconsider the meaning of the book from the viewpoint of women.
The text reads: "Electricity has become so much a part of our daily life that many of us have ceased to marvel at the possibilities held in its mysterious source of energy. Several volumes would not exhaust the possibilities for electrical apparatus which could be devised for you handy girls to make."
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.
