Women Illustrators
teatime girlsThe prime criterion for the choice of the books on this CD is obviously that they were they were illustrated by women, and more specifically by women of the late 19th century and the early 20th century. As is the case with other CDs in this series the original illustrations are shown in their original context, i.e. in the book or story they illustrated and of which they were an integral part.
These books were for young children mostly and it is on purpose that books with mythological themes which were illustrated by women have been set aside for other separate CD compilations.
Kate Greenaway, whose depictions of genteel English life of a more elegant era are instantly recognisable, was especially fond of girly tea rituals as shown here
teatime girlsShe was were very prolific and may be much better known than others, but the quality of the work of other illustrators who were less prolific is no less worthy of consideration on that account. One gets ones inspiration from all kinds of places and people. In the selection on this CD I have tried to show examples of the work on some of the finest female book illustrators of the period though, of course, there are omissions. Those people who will look at these illustrations will know what they like and will have their own favourites and will find inspiration wherever they will.teatime girls
