Blame It On Ed! (Signed by Author - Maurice Tanti Burlo)

£14.99

Product description

Hardback published in 2004 by Progress Press Co Ltd in very good condition. Book is signed by the author on title page and dated 1.5.04 and on first free end page there are the words 'For Wendy with our very best wishes, Elena & Maurice 22.10.07.'
The book itself is possibly very slightly shelf-cocked, the bottom corner of the front cover is also ever so slightly worn, otherwise it does not actually appear to have been used or opened and appears virtually as new. The white dustjacket has a little creasing at the top and bottom of the spine and along the top cover and is a little grubby in places being white. Binding sound and all pages clean and unmarked.

Times of Malta cartoonist Maurice Tanti Burlo or as he was better known Nalizpelra, began drawing cartoons for The Times of Malta in October 1977 to “get back at Mintoff” for the way Telemalta employees, such as himself, were suspended without pay for supporting doctors, nurses and bankers on strike. His chosen pseudonym Nalizpelra had featured in his cartoon showing an army of dissatisfied workers from all over Malta firing shots at a mean-looking Prime Minister Dom Mintoff, depicted as a bird.

In an interview in Times of Malta in 2012, he had spoken about this and other cartoons including an unpublished one on President Emeritus Eddie Fenech Adami, where the then President was depicted as Archbishop. He published three books A Worm’s Eye View in 1982, Blame it on Dom! in 2002 and Blame It on Ed! in 2004 and took part in more than 50 art and cartooning exhibitions in Malta and abroad since 1962. His cartoons have also been featured as stamp designs. He won the BPC Award to Journalists when the cartoons section was first introduced in 1998 and again in 2002. He was married to Elena Gatt and had a son, Sebastian. He died in 2014.
