The Scandalous Life Of The Lawless Sisters: Criminally Illustrated With What Was To Hand

By

Using cartoon illustrations from Punch, January-December 1880, Philip Ardagh has concocted a rollicking tale involving a group of Victorian ladies he calls, the Lawless sisters. By replacing the original captions to the drawings the staid and upright figures reveal their darker sides as, at the mercy of Ardagh’s pen, they become drug dealers, murderers and robbers of a bank security van armed with Russian made umbrella rifles.

Imaginative, ridiculous but most of all extremely funny, this is the perfect antidote to any approaching winter blues. And, happily, the final pages hint that the Lawless sisters’ reign of terror may not be over yet.
