Maintaining the British Empiredefending both Civilisation and its own state required vast human and political resources, not least in morale; and the cartoons portrayed, reinforced and convinced accordingly. Look very closely at the New Year cartoon for by Linley Sambourne and you will notice a muse with a mirror and symbols reflected back-to-front and upside-down.
Rather, it reflects them back with a mirror of humour, intelligently blending wit, opinion and observation into popular artistic expressions of the highest order. Because a truth remains somewhere in the message, like comedy, the whole thing works.
Collectively the magazine described a culture and period of time from within, and in so doing became the definition of Englishness: It demonised the Irish and the Socialist, and marvelled at the Suffragette.
Since its early days PUNCH observed footmen, butlers, taxi drivers, maids, actors, teachers, shopgirls, dandies, Society women, soldiers and politicians. It was one of the first papers registered a paper, one would fold out the pages into broadsheet size; the pages were stapled at the turn of the century to send a correspondent, draughtsman T.
Harrington Wilson to report on the Crimean War from the Prussian court.
During both World Wars we have the housewife, Land Girl, war worker, Boy Scout and profiteer during rationing, evacuations, the Zeppelin threat and the Blitz.
Its cartoonists illustrated for the top authors, adverts and information posters. A handful were knighted: William Haselden was offered a knighthood, and long standing contributors PG Wodehouse and John Betjeman given the honour late in life. Dance to the Music of Time; Patrick Ryan: Kai Lung; Keith Waterhouse: Billy Liar; Alan Hackney: The cartoonists Partridge, Illingworth, Fougasse and Langdon all produced public information posters for government ministries, the most celebrated of which were the Careless Talk Costs Lives campaign for the Ministry of Information by Fougasse in Fougasse was awarded a CBE in in recognition of this contribution.
Our modern preoccupations with celebrity, crime, fashion, science and technology, the arts, film and leisure are delivered in Victorian and Edwardian cartoons with the freshness of a new diary entry often lacking in posed and lifeless contemporary photos.
It was at the forefront of describing and re-imagining a new world of exciting discoveries, scientific breakthroughs, New Art and New Politics and shows how these layers enhance or challenge the normal man or woman on the street. When a new form of self-defence called Jujitsu becomes popularised in Western media, we see it applied to politics with The Suffragette that knew Jiu-jitsu.
When a new dance called the Tango arrives we see a policeman arresting a Suffragette using his latest dance move. The Spread of Tango: Politicians naturally, were fair game.
Gladstone, Disraeli and Lloyd George were praised and pilloried, but respected in equal measure. The young Churchill grew up reading PUNCH seeing his father Randolph mercilessly ridiculed, and learnt about history and the world through its full page political cartoons. By the time the Great War ended, that relationship had turned upside down along with the old orders: The once successful pattern of Britannia or the British Lion meting out vengeance on rebel Sepoys in India or arguing the moral case against Belgium in Africa was over.
The age of the consumer coincided with the Golden Ages of illustration, mass journalism, advertising, radio and cinema, and PUNCH through its anti-hero Mr Punch rode these horses simultaneously like a circus entertainer. But at its inception the magazine was not a commercial venture: They used a new, fast, accurate press to distribute the magazine efficiently and give it the edge over rivals; less than a hundred years later PUNCH had to increase its editorial pages because its advertising pages had grown significantly and it made more money through advertising revenue than circulation.
By it had to increase them to 28 pages in order not to be swamped by the adverts. While new forms of expression such as Modernism and Art Deco took off and Futurism and Dada were appropriated by Fascism and Soviet neo-realism, the New Woman too was constantly evolving and pushing the limits of what was permissible in dress, vocation and behaviour.
Fashions changed with the practicalities of physical movement in leisure and employment such as cycling, dancing, ice-skating or factory work.
