A wonderfully evocative collection of 1920s caricatures created by the illustrator Lewis Baumer for Punch magazine. The antics of the Bright Young People were widely reported in the papers, with an equal measure of horror and relish. Baumer's drawings, depicting flappers and fops in marvellous costumes, accompanied by the artist's droll captions, were a staple feature in Punch during the Twenties.
