'An Anti-Suffrage Alphabet' was designed by Laurence Housman and edited by Leonora Tyson, the organiser of the Lambeth/Southwark Women's Social and Political Union. The verses, documenting disenfranchised women's unfair subordination, lampooned opponents of women's suffrage. The book includes stencilled illustrations in the suffragette colours of purple and green by a number of female artists including Alice B. Woodward, Pamela C. Smith and Ada P. Ridley. The book was produced to raise funds for the suffragette campaign. Advertised in 'Votes for Women' on 15 December 1911, it was marketed as a suitable gift for suffragette supporters. Leonora received book orders at her home address in Streatham, where she printed each edition by hand.
