Elsie and P Wrigley


This partnership (husband and wife?) provided the illustrations for Saville's Words For All Seasons (Lutterworth 1979).

Elsie Wrigley on her own illustrated two of Saville's books in the Wonder Why series, those on woodland and wild flowers.

Alongside is a beautiful illustration from the cover of the last of these books, showing her delightfully light treatment of the commoner wild flowers of Britain.
