Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879 - 1964) was a prolific illustrator of children's books. Illustrating such books as Mother Goose, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and many more in 1922 was published the first annual in her own name (and the images here are from that book). As the popularity of the annual was not known only a small number were printed. The following year the popularity was known and had incresed and so began the long run of the Mabel Lucie Attwell annuals. By the 1960's the annual was beginning to lose its appeal to the younger generation and was in slow decline in post-war Britain. The last annual was published in 1974, 10 years after Attwell's death.
