Posy Simmonds

Simmonds at [[Hatchards]], London, November 2018 Rosemary Elizabeth "Posy" Simmonds MBE, FRSL (born 9 August 1945) is a British newspaper cartoonist, and writer and illustrator of both children's books and graphic novels. She is best known for her long association with ''The Guardian'', for which she has drawn the series ''Gemma Bovery'' (2000) and ''Tamara Drewe'' (2005–06), both later published as books. Her style gently satirises the English middle classes and in particular those of a literary bent. Both ''Gemma Bovery'' and ''Tamara Drew'' feature a "doomed heroine", much in the style of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century gothic romantic novel, to which they often allude, but with an ironic, modernist slant.
