This is legendary British cartoonist Ronald Searle?s caustic take on 1960s America, in the form of illustrations and drawings (with commentary).Dispatched to America in the early ?60s, the golden age of illustrative reportage, Ronald Searle spent several years covering everything?in the form of drawings in his trademark satirical and virtuosic style?from sports to politics, for magazines such as T he Saturday Evening Post and TV Guide. Topics included Palm Springs, Las Vegas, the Presidential contest between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon?as seen through the eyes of a caustic Englishman. Full-color illustrations throughout
About the Author:
Ronald Searle (1920-2011) trained at Cambridge College of Arts and Technology (now Anglia Ruskin University) for two years before enlisting in the Royal Engineers in 1939. A prisoner of war from 1942-1945 in Singapore and Thailand, he cartooned during his internment. Searle?s best-known comics series consisted of six books published between 1948-1959, featuring juvenile delinquent schoolgirls at the fictional school St. Trinian?s. (These have been adapted into films as recently as 2011.) Appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2004, he was also decorated with France?s highest honor for an artist, the French Order of the Legion of Honor, won the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award, and received the German Order of Merit.
Matt Jones is a story artist at Pixar. His Perpetua: Ronald Searle Tribute website has become the foremost resource for Searle fans.
