We are very excited to introduce our first range under our new Mabel brand. Teaming up with international retail business 1973 Ltd, we are launching a series of cards with gorgeous sculpted edging and classic original illustrations by Mabel Lucie Attwell, that many will recognise and we hope everyone will love.
From Fido’s cheeky look to cuddles and cuteness, Mabel’s wonderful characters appeal with a warmth and a sincerity that can’t fail to endear. We hope these carefully chosen illustrations will bounce off our pages to launch this exciting new venture. And there are plenty more surprises and smiles on their way, with a range of limited and other prints coming soon.
We are busy cataloguing hundreds of original works of art, exploring all kinds of interesting opportunities to bring you the very best of Mabel Lucie’s illustrations. The range of her work is stunning in its diversity. These classic characters are some of her most famous illustrations. But we are also uncovering her extraordinarily beautiful pencil line drawings, with which she has illustrated children’s classics from Peter Pan to Alice in Wonderland and The Water Babies.
In our new venture, we will be bringing this much loved and famous illustrator back into the limelight where she belongs – in the hearts and bedrooms of children (and adults…) all over the world. As we are delighted that her work is greeting with joyful exclamations of fond childhood memories. We look forward to rekindling that love and to introducing a new generation to the words, full of empathy and beautiful drawings of this iconic British artist.
