|Along the Shore, 1914|
Sue kindly left a comment to say that the artist who painted the Miss Mole book-jacket is Joseph Southall, that the original is in Kidderminster art gallery and that there is more of his work in Birmingham. Which immediately sent me off to Your Paintings .. how did I ever manage without it ... where, of course, I recognised the painting above.

I find it hard to resist a painting of a queue. (I can't quite make out the date. I think it's 1915. Or maybe 1913.)
Apparently, this is his best-known work but it's a fresco so you won't find it on Your Paintings. Couldn't resist that stole and muff.
And this is the artist's mother. Isn't that a wonderful lace cap? I feel another book-jacket coming on.
