Millicent Sowerby – The Wise Book 1906


Millicent Sowerby was born in Northumberland, England, the daughter of designer and illustrator John G. Sowerby. Her style was clearly influenced by the famed Victorian illustrator Kate Greenaway, usually depicting innocent children at play using flat colors and strong outlines.

I’m please to welcome another new illustrator to our gallery, Millicent Sowerby in her first debut book: The Wise Book. Published in 1906 by J.M Dent. She’s a well loved illustrator, influenced by the style of the great Kate Greenaway, but has her own color palette. Enjoy these wonderful illustrations !
