A volume of Punch magazine in the build up to World War Two.


Punch, January to June 1936

This volume of Punch, covering January to June 1936, is very interesting in that it shows the build up of expansionist fears of the Japanese and Nazis in the lead up to World War Two, and the tensions in Europe.

For anyone interested in illustration this book is full of wonderful work by the illustrators and the cartoonists of the day. This volume is packed with articles and sketches as well as cartoons about the Nazi threat, with images of Hitler, Mussolini, Herr von Ribbentrop, Neville Chamberlain and other power brokers.

It is interesting to see in this book how the style of cartoons began to change in the 1930s. In the 1940s, after the war, cartoonists such as Giles and Thelwell emerged with their new style of illustration.

Punch, January to June 1936 is a hardback of over 700 pages, packed with cartoons and articles. This book is in good condition with inside pages clean and bright.
