It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words but during the First World War magazine illustrations were worth even more, not only conveying the news to anxious families at home and soldiers in battle, but also entertaining and lifting the spirits of a nation at war.
In this talk, Luci Gosling will be considering the importance of cartoons and illustration in boosting morale, and the role of drawing for the ordinary soldier.
