A few weeks ago, I debuted a #TBT series that’ll focus on illustration produced long ago. Next up is Lorraine Fox was an editorial illustrator whose work graced magazines, book covers, and advertisements during the mid 20th century. She was described a standout in a “field overbearingly populated by men.”
You know how there’s the hashtag #TBT? (If you’re not in the know, it means Throw Back Thursday.) Anyways, it’s basically an excuse to post vintage photos and other things from long ago. I’ve always enjoyed it, but never participated… until now. I thought it’d be fun to take a look back at illustrations from the past century, with a specific focus on women illustrators. First up is my all-time favorite, Mary Blair.
