A respectable Victorian gentleman, Donald McGill, spent virtually the whole of his life creating colour-washed drawings which were reproduced as postcards and sold in millions from 1904 until the mid-1960s. McGill was, and remains, 'the king of the saucy postcard', still collected and appreciated today for his artistic skill, power of social observation and rumbustious humour.

The World of Donald McGill tells the story of McGill's life and takes a light-hearted look at the development of his work in its social context. Over 200 postcards are shown in full colour, including early and less well-known ones.

Condition: Fine hardback in fine protected dustwrapper.
