In 1858 a book called ‘The Arts of Beauty & Hints to Gentlemen on the Arts of Beauty’ was published by Lola Montez, the bombastic, whip-wielding, touring champion Spider-Dance exhibitioniste and bit-on-the-side for King Ludwig of Bavaria.
I added some cartoons, and Text Publishing brought the book out again in 1997 as a dear little hardback. Sadly, it’s now out of print. I’ve rummaged in the vault to find some of my favourite cartoons from the book, presented with “captions” provided directly from the advice of Miss Montez.
