Ronald Searle's America (and Paris)

For Ronald Searle fans:  this brand new Phantagraphics book, edited by Matt Jones is a must-have.

Hereunder is the book trailer:

"This lushly-produced book compiles drawings and illustrations by legendary British illustrator Ronald Searle have been virtually unseen 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 matchlessly virtuosic style."

Pages:368 / full color / 10.75" x 13.75"/ISBN-13: 978-1-60699-843-4 / 85 USD
