Abstract

This visual pamphlet was an invited contribution to the publication "Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer" and stands as a homage to the Golding Printing Press – which the East London Federation of the Suffragettes (the branch of the WSPU set up by Sylvia Pankhurst in 1914) used to print their hand bills and pamphlets. This apparatus was only recently removed from its Bow location, decommissioned in the basement of a public print shop, and passed into the hands of a private collector. The image of the Golding Jobber is very evocative of a certain era of British history but also of the marked difference between communication channels and mediums then and now. For The Emily Davison Lodge, there is a parallel here with the different, less imaginative ‘spirit’ of the revolution of everyday life in the 21st century England; we have adopted the image of the press itself to stir a creative political sentiment, mimicking the suffragettes' tactic of using images and myth to muster activist spirits.
