Original hand-drawn cover artwork by Iris Wells (1929-2019) for a 1964 Elliott & Sons promotional booklet. Elliotts was a traditional firm of shoemakers that became enormously successful in the second half of the 1960s by adapting to the new, youth-centered, market for women’s shoes and boots. The original artwork is sold with a contemporary copy of the printed booklet (see second picture). More information about Elliott’s innovative fashion publicity can be found here.
