About This Item

Famed caricaturist whose portraits of the famous, collected in books such as "Off With Their Heads!," made her subjects cringe; she wrote and illustrated 18 books ("The Good American Witch," 1957, being the best known) and illustrated 46 books by other writers. Signed book illustration, 1p, 4" X 7", n.p., n.d. Fine. Printed sketch entitled "Westminster Abbey," depicting half a dozen faces gazing to the left, signed boldly underneath in pencil. Judging from the paper quality, this is certainly an illustration from one of the books she illustrated, and research could pinpoint which one; verso of illustration is blank. Handsome and very displayable.
