Not to be confused with the Daily
Sketch newspaper, this was a weekly publication (fortnightly
from mid-WW2 onwards) featuring entertainment for the masses –
music hall, vaudeville, early cinema, pin-up, high society,
sporting occasions and light gossip.
1906 - 1952
The American Weekly was published by the Hearst Corporation
(from November 1896 up to the 1963) for inclusion as a
supplement to their Sunday newspapers. It was large -
about 21"x15" - and printed on newsprint. While much of
each issue contained photos and text, the illustrations are
generally good quality, especially the covers. Starting in
mid December 1922, King Features Inc. syndicated Bonzo's image
for this suppliment, under the title "A Dog's Life".
1922 - 1932
A weekly magazine, subtitled "La revista de los niños",
published by Editorial Atlantida in Buenos Aires.

until its merger with The Tatler. It carried political
comment and cartoons; sport, high society gossip and royal
news. It also contained cartoons by the popular World
War One artist Bruce Bairnsfather, and Heath Robinson’s famous
humorous drawings. There are good colour drawings in the
1920’s and 1930’s of leading holiday destinations at home and
1909 - 1931

The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News
was a weekly publication beginning in 1874, specialising in
the sporting life, country matters and the London theatre. It
also covered matters military. Artists included the equine
specialist John Sturgess and the crazy animal world of Louis
Wain. In 1943 it changed its name to Sport and Country,
in 1953 to Farm & Country and again in 1971 to Big Farm
Management, where our association with it ceased.
Throughout the title changes there was one constant: the
ever-popular colourful Christmas Number entitled Holly Leaves.

to London Life before ceasing publication.
1910 - 1939
Started in 1881, Tit-Bits was a weekly which began a revolution
in British popular journalism, leading to near-imitators such as
Alfred Harmsworth's Answers and exerting a longer-term influence
on the cheap newspapers of the 20th century. Primarily a
gathering of "human interest" snippets and other useless
knowledge, it also featured short stories and even full-length
