The beginning of the gospel of Jeremiah, as it is written...
Since his unforeseen resurrection from the tepid ashes of the Labour Party in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn has been on a seemingly unstoppable upward trajectory. And one of Britain's best-loved political cartoonists, Steve Bell, has been with him every step of the way.
In Corbyn: The Resurrection, Bell has compiled an unmissable selection of his caustically witty cartoons charting the Labour leader's ascension amid the country's best attempts to tear itself apart. From an unforgettable Star Wars pastiche depicting Jez-Bi-Wan Conorbyn's leadership saga, to Bell's savagely gleeful account of the 2017 snap election and beyond, the result is an endlessly entertaining chronicle of Corbyn's path from the 'unelectable' to 'the prime-minister-in-waiting'.
Steve Bell is a multi-award-winning political cartoonist. Born in Walthamstow in 1951, he began to work for the Guardian in 1981 and his cartoons have appeared in the paper ever since. He is a trustee of the Cartoon Museum in Bloomsbury, and is married with four grown-up children. He lives in Brighton.
