Not to be confused with the Daily Sketch newspaper, this was a weekly publication (fortnightly from mid-WW2 onwards) featuring entertainment for the masses – music hall, vaudeville, early cinema, pin-up, high society, sporting occasions and light gossip.

1906 - 1952

The American Weekly was published by the Hearst Corporation (from November 1896 up to the 1963) for inclusion as a supplement to their Sunday newspapers.  It was large - about 21"x15" - and printed on newsprint.  While much of each issue contained photos and text, the illustrations are generally good quality, especially the covers.  Starting in mid December 1922, King Features Inc. syndicated Bonzo's image for this suppliment, under the title "A Dog's Life".

1922 - 1932

Bemrose Prints


A weekly magazine, subtitled "La revista de los niños", published by Editorial Atlantida in Buenos Aires.

1921 - 1927

A weekly publication which ran from 1903 until its merger with The Tatler.  It carried political comment and cartoons; sport, high society gossip and royal news.  It also contained cartoons by the popular World War One artist Bruce Bairnsfather, and Heath Robinson’s famous humorous drawings.  There are good colour drawings in the 1920’s and 1930’s of leading holiday destinations at home and abroad.

1909 - 1931

A bi-monthly publication which ran from 1906 until post-1948.  It was a Parisian society magazine, with political & society humour and gossip.

1922 & 1925

The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News was a weekly publication beginning in 1874, specialising in the sporting life, country matters and the London theatre. It also covered matters military. Artists included the equine specialist John Sturgess and the crazy animal world of Louis Wain.  In 1943 it changed its name to Sport and Country, in 1953 to Farm & Country and again in 1971 to Big Farm Management, where our association with it ceased.  Throughout the title changes there was one constant: the ever-popular colourful Christmas Number entitled Holly Leaves.

1914 - 1939

A weekly publication which began in 1915 and ended in 1939.

1915 - 1929

The "Pie"s were all magazines published to raise money for various Benefit Funds;  "Printer's" and "Winter's Pies" were for the Printers' Pension, Almshouse and Orphan Asylum; "Pelman Pie" was for the Newspaper Press Fund; "Sea Pie" was for the King George's Fund for Sailors; "Scout Pie" was for the Boy Scout Fund.

1909 - 1937

A weekly publication which ran from July 1901, it is filled with news and pictures of high society balls, charity events, race meetings, shooting parties, fashion and gossip.  Cartoons by “The Tout” and H.M. Bateman were featured regularly.  The Tatler merged with the Bystander and continued into the mid-1960’s, briefly changing its name to London Life before ceasing publication.

1910 - 1939

Started in 1881, Tit-Bits was a weekly which began a revolution in British popular journalism, leading to near-imitators such as Alfred Harmsworth's Answers and exerting a longer-term influence on the cheap newspapers of the 20th century.  Primarily a gathering of "human interest" snippets and other useless knowledge, it also featured short stories and even full-length fiction serials.

1925 - 1937
