Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Martin Rowson is rather good. He is "harsh but fair", much like that other notorious lefty Joseph Stalin.

Not that Rowson has a huge amount in common with Joe, but but the anecdotes alone in this book are more than worth what Amazon is charging.

Couple with that the uncanny likenesses of such faves as Heseltine, Portaloo, Lord Longford and Alastair Campbell (not to mention Rowson/Bell's zen-like pictures of each other drawing each other) and this book is a bonafide work of art.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you ever eat at The Gay Hussar, a Hungarian restaurant in Soho with delicious food, you'll see the original caricatures from this book hanging on the walls (together with a few more). What is perhaps most remarkable is that Rowson who, along with the likes of Gerald Scarfe, Steve Bell and Fluck & Law is among the 'royalty' of caricaturists, drew all of the people here from life while they were actually eating at the restaurant.

This becomes all the more striking when you realise how much he must hate several of them to the very core of their being. The fact that each of his subjects saw their likenesses immediately afterwards and that Martin Rowson is not now six feet under but very much alive is extraordinary.
