Evelyn Dunbar (1906-60) worked on Gardener's Choice with Charles Mahoney. When we published it we wrote, "the main delight of the book is the drawings – black and white illustrations that have never been reproduced since their first publication in 1937". Like many illustrators, she drew all the time; the correspondence between the two was enlivened by Evelyn's delightful illustrations, as above. For more about her life and work, do look at Evelyn Dunbar: War and Country (2006) by Gill Clarke.
