Editor John Bailey writes of him in the introduction:

Stanislav Holý is a Czechoslovakian comic-artist, from which appellation the word “artist” cannot be taken away. He has deep understanding of form, and so can make fun of it. The richness of suggested detail in his work is satisfying and amusing, and because he possesses a strong sense of design, all the queer things he drags into his drawings work for him. His Kafka-like statements are eternal and transcend a momentary funny thought.  photo 4-6-7_zpsc61d35da.jpg Bill Tidy for Punch  photo 4-6-8_zpsd3951454.jpg Two of Cesc's trademark beggar cartoons:  photo 4-6-9_zpsd792beaa.jpg  photo 4-6-10_zps6c6a1de5.jpg Two-pager by J.

I had to cut off part of this to avoid shadows, but the person speaking was on the lower left talking to their kid.  photo 4-6-13_zps65591b30.jpg More next Saturday.
