Churchill in "Punch"

Eighty years of Winston Churchill’s political life and career through cartoons in Britain’s influential Punch magazine.

Punch, the now-defunct British weekly humor and satire magazine, featured Winston Churchill in more than six hundred cartoons between 1899 to 1988. Some were laudatory, some critical, and many humorous, like the man himself. Early on, Punch often made Churchill into a caricature of himself, promoting exaggerated images of his physical characteristics such as his forward-leaning gait, his prominent jutting jaw, and his ever-present cigar. His hobbies—polo, painting, writing, and brick-laying—were frequently skewered as well. 

This book catalogs, for the first time, all of the cartoons that featured the former prime minister, providing context for the events and people being satirized and placing them in their proper historical perspective.
