Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879-1964) is famous for her tongue-in-cheek illustrations of children painted for adults. During the WWII, she was prolific in producing postcards aimed at cheering the nation. Her work continues to sell in 100,000s worldwide, including figurines, stationery, gift cards and a new clothing range to be launched in 2013.
Vicki Thomas is a Design and Art Historian who represents the collection on behalf of the Lucie Attwell Estate. She has worked tirelessly to collate this collection of hundreds of images and the history behind them. She lives and works in London.
Mabel Lucie Attwell’s postcards tell the story of Britain’s Home Front in a charming and often moving way, they are at times laugh-out-loud funny and at times very poignant. She reflects in her writing, "During the Second World War, I worked in an empty building by the Thames. It had been used by the Thams Conservancy Board. When the war came, they moved out and I moved in. I staye there for most of the war. I never went down to an air raid shelter. I was too busy trying to make people laugh about wartime bread and sausages, instead of crying about them." Set in the context of her wartime letters and the home front, this book will be loved by Attwell fans old and new.
