Harriet Joor often sought to combine her writing and artistic talents in the printing of poems such as this one. This card (ca. 1910) on the left was created with a woodblock printing process, and is only one of many of her printed poems.

Teachers of courses in calligraphy, printmaking and drawing encouraged Newcomb students and alumnae to use their skills as Joor did in the design of woodcuts for calendars, stationery and bookplates too. Rosalie Urquhart, Mary Baker, and Mary Eliza Hunter produced lino-cuts and woodcuts that are found in collections even today. In addition, Newcomb educated artists used these skills in their own campus publications, such as The Newcomb Arcade.
