Women Artists - 1960's

Positive Space

Every time I move, I realize how many
books I have collected over the years.
Last week I donated several 
boxes of books.  

While going through the titles,
I decided to keep books 
written or illustrated by 
women who I couldn't easily find on 
the Internet and in museums.

Starting today, I will periodically write about them.

Mary Jane Gorton
Illustrations

Published 1963, Mary Jane Gorton illustrated the cover and all 9 images in this book.

The best company is a good book.

I love her illustrations and designs.
Her use of positive 
and negative space
creates compelling and 
powerful compositions.
