Linocut (1933). It is no surprise that Spowers is recognized as a children’s book illustrator par excellence. Here she captures the strenuousness of exertion required for the tug, but the bystanders, the cheering others reflect by proxy this exertion too. By such accuracy of body language Spowers captures the essence of the children’s play. This, with its pared down colours of pink and green and grey is a delightful evocation of children at play.
