Beginning with her days at school and ending just days before her death, the diverse contours of her life and activities are revealed to all who wish to make the acquaintance of this remarkable artist. In addition to sixty wood engravings, a wide range of her other work, dust jacket designs, line drawings, photographs, stamp designs, and a variety of ephemeral pieces are presented, many in full color. This edition contains an additional group of engravings, printed as an extra section in the book.
