Designing Women

“Today,” writes Ontario illustrator and graphic arts instructor Leif Peng, “there are just as many women illustrators as men (perhaps even more). But it wasn’t always so.”

In a recent series of posts for his blog, Today’s Inspiration, Peng highlights the abundant artistic output of 20th-century female artists such as Marilyn Conover, Lucia Larner, Mia Carpenter, and Mary Suzuki. It isn’t clear how much these women were involved in book-cover art, but their work was often seen in magazines. You’ll find Peng’s posts here: Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV.
