Florence Kate Upton (1873-1922) was among the earliest illustrators of children's picture books. Her Golliwogg character, immediately loved by children, was the first fictional character to be mass-produced. This is the first complete and accurate account of the original Golliwogg, filling a void in the history of children's literature and in the history of dolls. Upton was also a respected artist, settling in London after studies in Paris, and this biography is a comprehensive study of her artistic career, bringing together for the first time reproductions of her major works. It therefore adds a rich and formerly unexplored chapter to the history of women in the arts.
