Illustrators
Sadly, I can't find very much for the late Pat Marriott, other than Joan's own tribute (on the official website): "She has an absolutely magical gift for presenting landscapes and characters just as they were in my mind. She can get wonderful sympathy and terrific action and pace into her drawings of people; with some of my characters now, such as Dido and Miss Slighcarp, I can hardly envisage them other than as Pat draws them."
