About the Edition

From the sky-high coiffures of Marie Antoinette to Victorian hoop skirts, from the sheer gowns of Pride and Prejudice era to the flat-chested 1920s flapper, Style and Satire tells the story of European fashion and its most extreme trends through lavish fashion plates and the glorious satirical prints they inspired. Beautifully printed, hand-colored fashion plates first appeared in magazines and for sale individually in the late 18th century. At the same time (and often by the same artists), satirical prints gloried in the absurdities of fashion, presenting an alternative, often humorously exaggerated, vision of the fashionable ideal. Both forms were a product of the same print market, and both documented modern life. Lavishly illustrated, "Style and Satire" presents a witty and original history of fashion trends. Most prints are from the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Gulliver's Travels was the work of a writer who had been using satire as his medium for over a quarter of a century.

Satire is a protean term. Together with its derivatives, it is one of the most heavily worked literary. Compared with Book I, Swift’s satire is more clearly implied in the second book and attacks on political issues and humanity are more apparent. It is evident that Swift begins to express his discontent over Europe as the world’s dominant power and its practice of colonialism in this section if the historical context is considered.
