Full text not available from this repository.


Cartooning the Post-War World brings together all the newspaper cartoons of Joseph Morewood Staniforth (‘JMS’) which originally appeared in the British Sunday paper the News of the World and the Cardiff daily paper the Western Mail, between the end of the First World War in November 1918 and the death of Staniforth in December 1921. Over 800 cartoons document the cartoonist’s response to the fluid international and domestic situation as Wales, Britain, Europe and the wider world began to readjust to peacetime conditions. Each cartoon is presented with brief explanatory notes and with an open invitation to users to comment on the image and its possible meanings. The cartoons are accompanied by a range of resources which help to contextualise the cartoonist, his work and the newspapers which published him.
