Description
A celebration of 192 of the best British political cartoons from the scurrilous wits of our greatest cartoonists, spanning over 200 years. From the chaotic choler of caricatures by James Gillray (1756-1815) and George Cruikshank (1792-1878); the splenetic pages of 19th century ‘Punch’; 20th century greats David Low (1891-1963) and Leslie Illingworth (1902-79); through to the contemporary satire of Steve Bell (b.1951) and Patrick Blower (b.1959). Each cartoon is reproduced with a short contextual caption. Scandals, political commentary and a showcase of the evolving artform. Sure to make your splutter over your morning cup of tea, as the daily newspaper cartoons have done for two centuries.
