Hilariously Creative Comparison Photos from Satirical Magazine 'Lilliput', 1940

These hilariously creative comparison photographs were published in 101 Best Picture Comparisons From Lilliput or Chamberlain and the Beautiful Llam. This collection of highlights from the monthly British magazine Lilliput devoted to art, humour, short stories, and photographs. Lilliput – ‘The Pocket Magazine for Everyone – was founded in July 1937 by photojournalist Stefan Lorant, whose memoir I Was Hitler’s Prisoner sold many printings. In addition to editing Münchner Illustrierte Presse, one of Germany’s finest picture magazines, Lorant co-founded Picture Post with publisher Sir Edward G. Hulton in 1938.

In 1940, Hulton bought Lilliput, and the editorship was taken over by Tom Hopkinson and Kaye Webb, who later married cartoonist Ronald Searle, best known for creating St Trinian’s School. There were many famous contributors to Lilliput, including covers by Czech-German illustrator Walter Trier and features by H.E. Bates, Bill Brandt, Brassa, Aleister Crowley, Robert Doisneau, and C. S. Forester, Robert Graves, Nancy Mitford, V. S. Pritchett, and Sir Sacheverell Sitwell.
