About Book

Book Description
The work sheds light on the brilliant works of George Cruikshank. He has managed to invest humor in all his caricatures. Thackeray calls him the “English diamond” who brilliantly illumines everything he comes into contact with.

Download Description
There must be no smiling with Cruikshank. A man who does not laugh outright is a dullard, and has no heart; even the old dandy of sixty must have laughed at his own wondrous grotesque image, as they say Louis Philippe did, who saw all the caricatures that were made of himself. And there are some of Cruikshank's designs which have the blessed faculty of creating laughter as often as you see them. As Diggory says in the play, who is bidden by his master not to laugh while waiting at table--"Don't tell the story of Grouse in the Gun- room, master, or I can't help laughing."
