Book Description

What have the following got in common: a crocodile journalist, Joan Collins, a judge, a thinly disguised prime minister, a less thinly disguised American president, Rambo, a collection of rampant automobiles, and a most peculiar television set? The answer is that they all appear, in the worst possible light, in Gerald Scarfe's Seven Deadly Sins. Pride, Greed, Anger, Gluttony, Sloth, Envy parade before our startled eyes. And then there is Lust ... The Seven Deadly Sins will never be quite the same again, after they have been illuminated and dissected with Gerald Scarfe's savage wit. Or will they?
