Malcolm Johnson, Ian Hislop and Revd Richard Coles
eBook |248 pp
'A delightful tour of the eccentric, Anglican world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.'
'Malcolm Johnson has skilfully recovered these caricaturists from the magazine rack of history.'
'Victorian Worthies came when I needed a day away from the laptop, and I devoured it in the garden at a sitting.'
Victorian Worthies collects the very best caricatures of the leading church figures of Victorian Britain from the pages of the original Vanity Fair magazine.
The brilliant colour cartoons by Ape and Spy and accompanying vignette by Jehu Junior (editor Thomas Gibson Bowles) are here reproduced, with a brief modern-day biography by priest Malcolm Johnson.
Includes portraits of William Gladstone, Samuel Wilberforce, Alfred Lord Tennyson, John Ruskin, Anthony Trollope, John Henry Newman, Benjamin Disraeli, Queen Victoria, William Spooner, Robert Baden-Powell, Winston Churchill, Edward VII, Cosmo Lang and G K Chesterton.
