'This is a book of uninhibited graphic phantasy and fancy. The idea arose sparkling, out of a cloud of Drambuie on a crisp snowy Yorkshire night.' So begins the flap details promoting Helen Kapp's Toying with a Fancy. Perhaps in an effort to attract buyers, her cover design is not as harsh and satirical as those inside the book. The illustrations inside have a viciousness akin to the work of the German artist George Grosz.
