Postcards from the Nursery is a tribute to the legions of children's illustrators - the renowned and the unsung heroines and heroes of children's illustra-tion in the early 20th century - when postcards were an essential communi-cations medium. They, together with mass circulation magzines, provided illustrators with a stepping stone to even greater achievements. Many, like Anne Anderson, Mabel Lucie Attwell, Cicely Mary Barker and Arthur Rackham took that successful step, others never received the accolades they deserved. This book provides a glimpse of how they coped in trying circumstances.
