Add Ink: Cartoon Chronicles of Life in Hong Kong

May 13, 2021 in Events, News

PCO member and award-winning South China Morning Post’s political cartoonist Harry Harrison has just launced his new book ‘Add Ink: Cartoon Chronicles of Life in Hong Kong’,

Recognised for more than 20 years as one of Hong Kong’s top political cartoonists, Harrison’s 329 page book is carefully curated by SCMP’s editors from the daily editorial cartoon ‘Harry’s View’. It illustrates the most gripping events from the last five years while providing a pointed and humorous critique on the city’s many contradictions, satirising global events through a Hong Kong lens, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic.

Harry writes: “Hongkongers always have a dark sense of humour no matter how difficult things get, and the book is a tribute to the people in the city who inspire me every day,…While my cartoons are not able to make the city’s problems magically disappear, I hope they can provide some relief by encouraging us to laugh at ourselves.”
