BOOK LAUNCH 11 JULY 2023: The Political Cartoons of Derso and Kelen

Join the authors at the launch of their new book 'The Political Cartoons of Derso and Kelen: Years of Hope and Despair' at Methodist Central Hall Westminster at 3pm on 11th July 2023. 

Alois Derso and Emery Kelen were without rival in their day, bringing humour, gentle satire, artistry and vision to capture the zeitgeist of an era that witnessed the creation of the League of Nations, the rise of fascism and, following another world war, that period of hope entrusted in the new United Nations. Surprisingly, no comprehensive account of their work and lives has been published until now.

Both co-authors of this fascinating overview of Europe's failing efforts to secure peace will be speaking about the cartoonists and their remarkable partnership during the meeting which will also provide time for informal discussion.


You can buy your copy signed by the co-authors, at 20% discounted price at the event, or you can buy a copy at 20% discount until 31 July: click here to buy your copy, quoting discount code DK20 at checkout.
