Punch magazine gave us the cartoon as we know it today. For over 160 years from its birth in 1841 Punch's cartoons amused, enlightened and annoyed its readers. Quintessentially British, Punch cartoons were famous the world over for their witty observation of the British character, social commentary and superb artistry. The biggest and best collection of Punch cartoons ever published, The Best of Punch Cartoons is packed with magnificent gags and beautiful artwork by some of the finest cartoonists and illustrators of the past two centuries. Special features showcase major artists and an array of favourite themes from The Great Exhibition of 1851 and Early Motoring to The Space Race, Psychiatry - and Lemmings. This book includes immortal favourites like George du Maurier's True Humility (The Curate's Egg), Paul Crum's 'I keep thinking it's Tuesday' and Birkett's bumbling Daleks alongside H M Bateman's The Man Who..., The British Character by Pont, Thelwell's ponies, Ronald Searle's The Rake's Progress and Bud Handelsman's Freaky Fables.
