Compleat Tangler: A Witty Take on Fishing from the Legendary Cartoonist (Paperback)
Compleat Tangler brings together a glorious collection of Thelwell's fishing cartoons.What do fishermen really get up to when they abandon a warm bed before the crack of dawn, stuff a haversack with tins of assorted maggots, half a hundredweight of pulped bread and a folding campstool, and disappear into the drizzle? Thelwell presents his report.
Norman Thelwell contributed more than 1,600 cartoons to Punch magazine, the Sunday Express and Tatler. Thelwell's cartoons remain a popular and wry look at British life. He was particularly well-known for his cartoons on horse riding, fishing, sailing, motoring and country pursuits and was one of the founder members of the British Cartoonists' Association.
