Mabel Lucie Attwell (4 June 1879 – 5 November 1964) was a British illustrator. She was known for her cute, nostalgic drawings of children, based on her daughter, Peggy. Her drawings are featured on many postcards, advertisements, posters, books and figurines.
Mabel Lucie Attwell is one of the most well-known and loved woman illustrators of the Golden Age. It’s easy to see why, her illustrations lacks details and some overly “sweet”. But her chubby, winsome figures, simple palette, catchy composition is pleasing to the eyes won over the hearts of many children a hundred years ago and still do today. Many of her books are still in print to this date. Here is one of her early work: Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Published by Raphael Tuck, circa 1912. Enjoy.
