The Best of Punch Cartoons in Colour

£19.99

Product description

Discover a feast of pictorial delights from the pages of Punch - in glorious colour. Celebrated for its black and white cartoons, Punch's move into colour illustrations early in the twentieth century is now all but unknown. The Best of Punch Cartoons in Colour reveals the magnificent results in the first collection of its kind. Colour blossomed in the 1920s Almanacks and Summer numbers with spectacular images from such greats as E H Shepard, Fougasse, H M Bateman, Arthur Watts, Leslie Illingworth, Anton and Emmet. The launch of changing weekly colour covers in 1957 became the showcase for a host of brilliant illustrators from Ronald Searle, André François, George Adamson and Russel Brockbank to Thelwell, Quentin Blake, Ralph Steadman and Trog, while the 1980's saw the arrival of master colourists like Mike Williams and Stan Eales.

This heavy book is in fine condition except for a little light edge bumping and minor text block edge rubbing. The jacket has some light surface marks plus three bumping nicks to the lower edge and a small closed tear, approx. 7mm to the upper spine end; slight wear to rear corners and light edge creases.
