Joan in Flowerland

Joan in Flowerland by Margaret Tarrant and Lewis Dutton.

Illustrated by Margaret Tarrant.

Undated, but I think it’s a reprint from 1950, as the 1935 first edition was published undated in blue cloth rather than the beige of my copy.

Hardback, no dustjacket.

Coloured frontispiece and 15 colour plates, plus many line drawings- all of children and various flower fairies.

Margaret Winifred Tarrant (1888 – 1959) was an English illustrator specialising in depictions of fairy-like children and religious subjects. She began her career at the age of 20, and painted and published into the early 1950s.

She was known for her children’s books, postcards, calendars, and print reproductions.

The book tells of Joan’s journey through Flowerland after falling asleep in the sun one day.
Bought in Fosters in Chiswick. Lovely shop.

Sometimes turns up on Amazon: Flowerland
