Marguerite Patten: November 4, 1915 - June 4, 2015

It is hard to think of anyone who had a greater influence than her on British cooking and culture in the 20th century, than the late, great Marguerite Patten, who died in June at the age of 99.

With her help, Britain bravely battled to feed itself on rations throughout the war. And when the war was over, she found herself at the vanguard of modern home cookery, where she remained until she retired. 

We were absolutely delighted that Marguerite's daughter, Judith, gave our work her seal of approval. 

A scribituary is, of course, Scriberia’s own take on the obituary, and they give us a chance to do what we do best. As a specialist animation, graphic facilitation and illustration agency, we believe in the power of pictures to tell stories and connect people to content and its context.

A life, illustrated in a way that balances fact with feeling, and story with style, is the ultimate challenge for us as visual storytellers.
