Stefan Lorant - Chamberlain and The Beautiful Llama and 101 More Juxtapositions, Hulton Press Ltd, 1940, London

 

Hardcover cloth bound with dust jacket.

Compiled by the photojournalist Stefan Lorant from previous issues of Lilliput magazine.

"Inside was a selection of wittily chosen and humourous photographs that provoke thought, or raise a smile. Or both. It’s all about clever, satirical juxtapositions based on observation and the appearance of things. So a bulbous ripe pear is compared to the face of a portly publican, a view of Parisian rooftops are surreally compared to a hat shop display, and kissing film stars are compared to fish. And, hence the title, a portrait of Neville Chamberlain baring his teeth mid-debate is compared to a llama. Just as we have in some of today’s magazines and newspapers, there are also ‘lookie-likies’ of personalities of the day. For example comedian Alastair Sim being compared to the then minister of transport, Sir John Reith.
But it’s not all light-hearted. The book was published in 1940, when Europe was at war. One of the chapters is devoted to ridiculing notable Nazis, including Hitler. Whilst done in a light-hearted manner, it’s often far from that underneath, and was undoubtedly part of propaganda during the period." (Mark Hill)
