  • Marie Duval by Simon Grennan, Rodger Sabin and Julian Waite

    Marie Duval (1847–1890) was a groundbreaking Victorian female cartoonist whose wide range of work, depicting an urban, often working class milieu, has been largely forgotten. This is a book for pleasure: the first to celebrate her life and work. 'Marie Duval is one of the forgotten wonders of 19th-century art. Her drawings have something in common with Honoré Daumier, but also look forward almost uncannily to modern comics in their fantastical surreal wit.'
    Jonathan Jones, The Guardian 'A superb study…Combining fascinating insight with honesty and appraisal, we’re treated to an extraordinary journey into the world of late Victorian humour… positively glorious.'

" Helena Kennedy, QC Leading feminist Cynthia Enloe pulls back the curtain on patriarchy to reveal not only the blatant sexism we can all identify, but also the insidious persistence of particular forms of masculinity and authoritarianism in daily life.
