"A kind of literature to end literature..."

Love Yesterdays's Papers. It's neat to see how little some aspects of comic strip art have changed. I have an copy of H. Heath's Caricature Scrapbook (1840) with sections that aren't much different from a 70's Mad magazine. It's got chapters called "Sayings and Doings" and "Old Ways - New Ways" (comparing the 1840 styles and attitudes to 1790s)

I used to read 'Punch'! Despite the Hibernophobia it was a cool magazine back in the day, and all 'The Best People' had some access to it.
