An early edition from a series which marked the true beginning of British animation. The pioneering mix in this issue includes political cartoons, an animated reconstruction of the sinking of the Lusitania and comic scenes of a cartoon Chaplin. Postcard illustrator Dudley Buxton pushed rapidly beyond the filmed 'lightning sketch' to explore the potential of a new art form with wit and innovation.
