The Inking Woman
The Inking Woman is a ground-breaking collection that celebrates the work and talent of over 150 women cartoonists and comic artists in Britain, from the eighteenth century to the present day.
This wide-ranging curation of women’s comics work includes caricatures, joke, editorial and strip cartoons, on prints, postcards, comics, zines, graphic novels and digital comics, covering all genres and topics. Based on an exhibition of the same name, held at The Cartoon Museum in 2017, the book demonstrates that women have always had a wicked sense of humour and a perceptive view of the world. This glorious collection of cartoon and comic art images not only salutes the women artists who made them but reclaims the archive for posterity and stakes its rightful place in art history.
