The World of Pont

Graham Laidler, known as Pont, is one of Lord Drone’s favourite cartoonists.

Pont drew hundreds of cartoons for Punch magazine in the 1930s and was a keen observer of the upper middle classes. He is perhaps most famous for his series on the ‘British Character’. This was published as a book in 1938.

Laidler signed his name as Pont, short for Pontifex Maximus, (Latin for greatest priest), a nickname he acquired during a visit to Rome. He died of polio in 1940 aged 32.
