Product Description

Synopsis

Since their debut in "Punch" over forty years ago, Norman Thelwell's cartoons and drawings have delighted millions of people all over the world. His portrayals of sporting pursuits, human beings at play, the life of the countryside and, of course, ponies, are the products of a unique comic genius and are as popular today as they ever were. To celebrate the career of this best-loved British cartoonist, Methuen is re-publishing classic Thelwell titles. "Thelwell Country" is a bucolic reflection of the English countryside in the great Thelwell tradition. "Thelwell's Book of Leisure" collects Thelwell's enduring comic observations of the English at play.
