“Good Heavens, what a small world. It’s the Atkinsons”
Original pen and ink drawing by cartoonist David Haldane recalling an old ‘Punch’ front cover, which David has re-drawn for this exhibition. The ‘Punch’ house style preferred the use of grand scenarios for which the punchline was often something mundane. Here we see the unlikely event of King Kong crashing through the jungle, holding a couple as hostage. Typical English response is that the couple are the tourists neighbours, not that they have seen King Kong!
