Evelyn Stuart Hardy (1866 - 1935)
Evelyn Stuart Hardy came from a family of artists living in Bristol. From an early age she contributed work to periodicals, and illustrated many books for Nister who is well known for publishing children’s “Pop Up” books and Nursery rhymes in the Victorian/Edwardian periods. She illustrated amongst others “Peep Bo Pictures” (1898). and “The Land Long Ago: A visit to Fairyland with Humpty Dumpty” (1890). These books are much sought after. Hardy was producing illustrations for Nister between 1890 and 1910.
