Votes for Women printing block
The collection contains a printing block measuring 6" x 7.5" x 1" made of wood and metal. The printing block is headlined "Roll of Honor" with a suffrage pennant emblazoned "Votes for Women" below. Underneath the pennant, an inscription reads, "Distinguished people who have declared themselves for woman suffrage." Beneath are columns titled "Statesman," "Preachers," "Men of Letters," and "Educators." These columns list names such as Mark Twain, Plato, and Jack London. Though uncredited, this block may have been produced by the Suffrage Atelier, an artists' collective founded in 1909 that campaigned for women's suffrage in England. The design and font also recall the aesthetic style of the Suffrage Atelier.
