Ronald Searle: A Biographyby Russell Davies
Ronald Searle is England's most famous cartoonist, and the professionals' choice. Ask any contemporary cartoonist who is the greatest in the post-war era and the unanimous reply will be, Ronald Searle of course! This volume, published to coincide with a retrospective exhibition at the Chris Beetles Gallery in London, showcases more than 200 of Searle's distinctive illustrations. Every single aspect of his great genius and range is represented: early 1940s Lilliput cartoons; harrowing first-hand sketches from Changi Gaol and the Siam-Burma Railway; 1950s St. Trinian's girls' school horrors; the inimitable Molesworth, the ultimate 1950s schoolboy; and Punch cartoons from the 1950s-1970s demonstrating that Searle is now better than ever.
