By Nicola Streeten & Cath Tate
250 years of the most talented and dynamic British female comic artists are celebrated in this informative and inspiring collection. Often hidden from history this collection brings women cartoonists centre stage, including their pivotal role in publishing from the 18th Century onwards.This is a must have book for everyone who loves comics in all their genres and for those who are curious to have the answers to “Why Comics?” The authors Nicola Streeten and Cath Tate present a kaleidoscope of work from the satire of women cartoonists of the 18th century such as Marie Duval to the contemporary horror comics of Alison Sampson!
“like so much art, women have taken a back seat. Now they are at the forefront and I am so proud!” Sandi Toksvig
