About the Author
Kenneth Cyril Bird used the pseudonym "Fougasse" for his work as an illustrator. He is best-known for his "Careless Talk Costs Lives" posters which he drew during WW2 for the Ministry of Information and for which he was awarded a CBE. He was editor of Punch magazine from 1949 until 1953. His drawings and cartoons succeeded in communicating often serious issues in a humorous and light-hearted way. Fougasse died in 1965 aged 77.
