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: "When a handy girl tackles a job, it is with a feeling of confidence in her ability to carry it through to successful completion. She knows just how to go about it, works systematically, and handles her tools like a trained mechanic. It is a pleasure to watch her work."

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.
