Punch was a long-running 19th and 20th century British magazine known for its humour, satire, and cartoons.
Punch began publication in 1841. In its early years, it was subtitled "The London Charivari", after a Parisian magazine that it was originally patterned on. It ceased publication in 1992. In 1996, the magazine was revived under new ownership, but the revival folded in 2002.
The hardback book version contains all the magazines issued in that year in one publication and shows the key events and political issues in a humorous light, with black and white iconic cartoons.
Blue boards, gold embossed logo and faded gold embossed spine.
