In London there is a Women’s Library, with an incredible collection of Suffrage Banners. One of the most prolific banner-makers, and founder of the Artists’ Suffrage League, Mary Lowndes, published this pamphlet, the cover of which (as well as many as many of her banners and sketches) is in the VADS archives.
