British cartoonist site Bloghorn reports a book of cartoons from The Oldie is to be published later this month, and an exhibition to go with it will be held at London’s Cartoon Museum.
The Oldie Book of Cartoons 1992 – 2009 will be published on 25th September and feature more than 400 of the best cartoons from the magazine.
After editing Private Eye for over 20 years, Richard Ingrams created The Oldie back in 1992, along with a group of friends (Auberon Waugh, Alexander Chancellor and Stephen Glover). “The aim was to produce an antidote to youth culture but, more importantly, a magazine with emphasis on good writing, humour and quality illustration,” he explains. “Years later, The Oldie can well claim to be a success story, attracting some of our best writers, illustrators and cartoonists.”
The Cartoon Museum will hold an exhibition entitled Cartoons from The Oldie in its Blue Room from 30th September until 24th December.
