BOOK REVIEW ” the with

” Up the Straight with Brockbank.” (Temple Press, Ltd., Bowling Green Lane, E.C1 ; 56 pp., 71 in. by 101 in., 7s. 6d.)

Generally, the writer does not spend money which would otherwise buy petrol on ” extra ” books, by which he includes those containing drawings without text. But this volume of some of Russell Brockbank’s outstanding motoring cartoons is in an entirely different category-it is excellent value and all but essential to any library purporting to represent the “dyed-in-the-wool ” enthusiast.

Temple Press have allowed the talented cartoonist his head. and original features will be found in this beautifully published book. The cartoons need no qualification-except that they are by the greatest of all motoring cartoonists’. His characterisations of both cars and their users is 1’00 per cent. : take but one example, that of ” Half Pint ” (may she never look back).

The hook is enhanced by an introduction by Christopher Dennings, Editor of The Motor, in which he writes’ of Brockbank beneath an ingenious picture Qf the artist himself. Our favourite amongst this collection of splendid cartoons and thumb-nail sketches ? The one on page. 49. Get your dose of R.B. at your station bookstall tonight. It will more than compensate for the journey home by 11.R.-W. B.
