Luci, who has a degree in history from the University of Liverpool, has worked in the picture library industry since 1993. She joined Mary Evans in January 2007 after a stint as manager of the Illustrated London News archive and is involved in all aspects of client-facing activity and marketing from pitching book ideas to social media updates. Despite studying ancient and medieval history, Luci's main areas of historical interest are 20th century - the First World War, illustration, royalty and women's history. She has authored ten books inspired by content in the archive at Mary Evans, regularly writes magazine articles, gives lectures and has even been heard on the radio once or twice. Luci is a keen baker and, being the only member of the team to live north of the river, an equally keen grumbler about her daily commute. But she's been doing it for almost ten years, so she must like it here.
