Elizabeth Brozowska A vintage illustrated gem
Happy Monday morning to one and all. I hope this gets your week off to a great start.
Sadly, there is little that I can discover online about the mid-century artist Elizabeth Brozowska, apart from the fact that she drew the comic strip ‘Geraldine’ (or ‘Josephine’ in Holland) for the National Newspaper Syndicate between 1962 and 1968.
Fortunately she didn’t just draw cartoons, as she is also the author and illustrator of the 1963 children’s book ‘The boy who wouldn’t eat his breakfast’ for the Wonder Books collection. What a superb style she has !
Of course not eating your breakfast can lead to all kinds of things happening, like shrinking , flying on birds and almost becoming dinner for your dog!
She created at least another three books that I know of like The Animal’s Party.
A book about Nicholas and the Lion.
And finally a lovely hippo book.
She obviously had quite a successful career and her work is great, if anyone knows any more about Elizabeth, could they please let me know so that I can enlighten everyone. Many thanks. What do you think readers ? Did anyone own one of her books when they were small ?
