    For over 160 years, Punch published work by some of the greatest cartoonists, from John Tenniel and George du Maurier to Ken Pyne and Tony Husband. This handsome compilation, presented chronologically, shows how the magazine developed and popularized the form with its combination of social and political satire, witty reflections on the British character and observations inspired by such events as the Great Exhibition of 1851, the two World Wars and the Space Race.
