In 1918, three artists of that era were called upon to promote campaigns which would inspire American households to plant victory gardens, preserve the produce and to conserve and not waste food. While James Montgomery Flagg, Leonebel Jacobs and Paul Stahr created these historic illustrations, women in our country had not yet achieved the right to vote. It was believed that these images were contributing catalysts for the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
Throughout our country's journey, especially during challenging times, war and pandemic .... women can always be counted on to step up and pitch in for America.
After more than a century, the message in these historic illustrations are even more revelant today!

As a artist and publisher, Lori Faye Bock is a very meticulous and detailed individual .... both with the paintings she creates and in the manner in which she publishes a premium product of limited edition prints as well as an extensive line of greeting cards.
Fast forward to 1989 when she moved to Santa Fe and was introduced to and developed a relationship with Taos Pueblo legendary painter Pop Chalee, whose words of wisdom were, "Don't ever be reluctant in letting others know what you do for a living."
Visiting the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh in 2001 was inspirational for Lori Faye Bock and was also the catalyst for her decision to consider publishing a line of greeting cards and museum quality limited edition prints.
With the centennial anniversary this year commemorating women in America having the right to vote, the decision was made to revive artist illustrations from 1918 to educate, celebrate and motivate women of all ages to understand the power of persistence, persuasion and organizing dating back to the first woman's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848.
With the publication of these historical illustrations, we hope you will consider collecting and sharing these products and encouraging more women to participate .... not just the national elections this November 3rd .... but also in future years.
