Originally designed as a postcard in 1909, Mitchell
as part of her Girls Will Be Girls
series, promoting women’s literacy and education. Illustrated in her distinct style of heavy linework and rich blocks of color, Dig
features a young college student seated surrounded by library stacks absorbed in an Economy book. A sign above encourages her to “do it now”, a nod to Mitchell
’s women’s education activism.
Today, Mitchell’s Dig remains one of her most well known illustrations. The perfect print to usher in the season of scholarship. We at 20x200 are a real bookish bunch of word nerds with no shortage of arty tributes to textual treasures. And in honor of Sadie Wendell Mitchell, we’re ready to Dig in to National Reading Month.
