This lavishly produced volume compiles drawings and illustrations by the legendary Ronald Searle that have been virtually unseen by the public since their original publication in the 1960s. During this golden age of illustrative reportage, Ronald Searle - an influence on historic figures as wide-ranging as Matt Groening, Pat Oliphant and John Lennon - was sent by American magazines such as Holiday and LIFE to far-flung and exotic locations. He would report back with a raft of drawings detailing his observations and experience in his trademark satirical and virtuoso style.
