Gerald Scarfe – new books!

Gerald Scarfe’s autobiography Long Drawn Out Trip: My Life, published by Little, Brown is now available in all good book shops and of course, hand signed copies are on our web site. For the first time, the legendary cartoonist and designers tells his life story. With captivating, often thrilling stories, Gerald takes us from his childhood and early days at Punch and Private Eye, through his long and occasionally tumultuous career as the Sunday Times cartoonist, to his film-making at the BBC and much-loved designs for Pink Floyd’s The Wall and Disney’s Hercules.

And on  7th November, another publication: Scarfe: Sixty Years Of Being Rude – a beautifully illustrated coffee-table book that presents work spanning Gerald’s incredible artistic career. In Scarfe, Gerald Scarfe’s work is presented as no book has presented it before. This fully illustrated, 576-page coffee-table volume reveals the truth of sixty years of politics and culture, packed with images that have defined not only one artist’s career, but also twentieth and twenty-first century British life. A showcase of Gerald’s glittering career in design, reportage and showbusiness, Scarfe presents drawings, sculptures and photographs alongside witty and poignant captions and stories. His muses: Thatcher, Clinton, Blair, May and Trump, as well as many other titanic figures of our times are all here, revealed as they really are by Gerald’s cutting pen. Carefully curated by the artist himself, this monumental book is the definitive guide to the career of a national treasure.
