Three Sheets in the Wind
Allison & Busby Ltd
The perfect gift for any sailor who has misinterpreted a distress signal, worn stilettos on board, abandoned ship, or experienced irreparable damage to their social status at the club. Norman Thelwell was a keen observer of the foibles of the British at work and play. He is best known for his small, round and hairy ponies and their small, equally round little girl owners.
Norman Thelwell contributed more than 1,600 cartoons to Punch magazine and worked as political cartoonist for the News Chronicle, then at the Sunday Express and Tatler. He was particularly well-known for his cartoons on horse riding, fishing, sailing, motoring and English country life and was one of the founder members of the British Cartoonists' Association.
