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: "The handy girl should have a handy working-place for home carpentry and experimental work. What is needed is a corner somewhere for her workbench, tool chest, materials, miscellaneous apparatus, and various models."

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.
