The Sun Shone on The Elephant Book

The Sun Shone on The Elephant Book

Here is a rare 1967 children's book written and illustrated by Gwyneth Mamlock. I've briefly mentioned her once before on this blog. A Google search under her name pulls up plenty of images, but unfortunately, no biography. I love her illustration style: the thick marker and the thin combined with her loose drawing technique and deep, saturated colors.
