Lovers of the great man’s work (and there are many) will be delighted to learn that a new book containing Searle’s observations on all things Stateside has just been published by Fantagraphics.
Lavishly produced, this tome does not come cheap. However it does contain illustrations in Searle’s “trademark satirical and matchlessly virtuosic style” – and many of them have been virtually unseen since the 1960s. Edited by the passionate Searle scholar Matt Jones, whose Perpetua: Ronald Searle Tribute website has become the foremost resource for Searle fans, the book also features a running commentary by Searle himself (as well as his wife Kaye Webb).
