NoteStreams By Treasures and Musings
During her lifetime, British mystery writer Agatha Christie published 66 detective novels. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s -- the peak of Christie's career -- in the U.S. these works often first appeared as serials in magazines like Collier's, The Saturday Evening Post, and Redbook, giving fans an opportunity to read and follow a story months before the book's publication.
While many artists illustrated her work, perhaps no illustrator collaborated with her more than Mario Cooper.
