"I was inspired by Alice Paul's amazing story. I decided to use her as a main focus of the poster, along with the monument. I feel this reflects her strength and presence as a feminist.
In the background young women are shown waving flags in a New York City parade at the beginning of 20th century, embracing and supporting Paul and the house. I included the message "Votes for Women" on the right hand-side, the main message of the suffrage movement. I used the colour palette of the stained-glass window at the entrance of the house." - Melly Wells

About our Prints
Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
