The Tin-Pot Foreign General and the Old Iron Woman

BRIGGS, Raymond

BRIGGS, Raymond The Tin-Pot Foreign General and the Old Iron Woman

Hamish Hamilton, 1984.

First edition. Glazed pictorial boards. Bookplate with a signed photograph of Briggs to the front pastedown. Illustrated throughout in colour and black and white by Briggs. A near fine copy.

ready-made satire … it was like a fairytale. There were two giants, larger-than-life, and both apparently puffed up with their own pride and vanity. The metallic depictions of Galtieri as the "tin pot foreign general" and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as the "iron lady" are exaggerated, depicted in a style that intentionally alludes to the work of political satirist and cartoonist Ralph Steadman.[Comics Bulletin, 2015]
