Gwen White (born 1903 ) from A Book of Pictorial Perspective
published by Murray, London, 1955Gwen White worked extensively and taught
widely during her career. She worked on BBC publications for children
but she is best known for the two books on pattern and perspective, extensions
of her teaching at Farnham and St.Albans. Her major achievement, A Book
of Dolls (1956) is an excellent attempt to convey detailed information
in art work rather than by saturation photographic coverage.
