A lady to admire

I’m always excited when the new Selvedge magazine arrives in my mailbox – it’s full of pretty things and I generally learn something every time I open the cover. Today I was introduced to a Mid-Century British designer, illustrator and printmaker called Enid Marx, who was incredibly prolific and worked on everything from textiles to posters, book jackets and even postage stamps (perhaps that’s why I’m so taken with her work). There’s currently an exhibition of her work at the Pallant House Gallery in West Sussex in the UK – a little bit out of my way unfortunately so I’ll have to be content with looking at her pictures online. Like these delightful dogs.
