Congratulations! Linda Brewster Rodgers

Congratulations go out to Linda Brewster Rodgers for her first published book titled, Rose O’Neill: The Girl Who Loved to Draw written by Linda Brewster Rodgers (she writes as Linda Brewster). It’s a fascinating biography of the early life of Rose O’Neill, the illustrator who created the kewpie drawings that led to the creation of the kewpie doll.

KewpieKewpie dolls and figurines are based on comic strip-like illustrations by Rose O’Neill that appeared in Ladies’ Home Journal in 1909. The small dolls were extremely popular in the early 1900s. It’s an excellent biography and a beautiful art book, and it makes a wonderful gift for a kid (9 to 12) or for an adult interested in art. The book is currently available for order from Boxing Day Books: http://www.boxingdaybooks.com/BoxingDayBooks/ONeill.html
