The Sambourne Touch


The Sambourne Touch
(2022, 192 pages, $23.95, 6 inches wide by 8.75 inches tall)

Linley Sambourne (1844-1910) could draw anything, and draw it well. He was the first major illustrator of Charles Kingsley’s children’s book The Water-Babies, and drew political and social cartoons for Britain’s Punch magazine for more than forty years. He worked alongside Alice in Wonderland illustrator John Tenniel, who said Sambourne’s work was “of absolutely inexhaustible ingenuity and firmness of touch.” This book collects many of his best editorial cartoons, a number of his illustrations for The Water-Babies, the sketches he made for F.C. Burnand’s parody of Anthony Trollope’s The Warden, and the dazzling drawings of imaginary worlds he made for several annual issues of Mr. Punch’s Almanack. Prepare to be impressed, and amazed, by an artist who has been unfairly forgotten.
