The Life and Lines of New Zealand’s First Political Cartoonist James Brown
by IAN DOUGHERTY
Shooting Folly as it Flies is the first biography of New Zealand’s first political cartoonist, the Dunedin engraver and artist, James Brown, and reproduces all his surviving cartoons, many of which have not been previously published. They constitute what the book describes as a ‘rare visual record of and a remarkable and enduring commentary on the factional and fickle world of settler politics in Dunedin and Otago in the 1850s and 1860s, which would have been duplicated in settlements through New Zealand’.
