Remembering Bill Tidy

Posted: May 15th, 2023

The death on March 11 [2023] of one of the Daily Mirror’s cartoon geniuses – BILL TIDY, MBE – gives us a chance to revisit one of his greatest creations, The Fosdyke Saga.

You can read Donald Zec’s marvellous introduction to the Fosdykes in the reproduction, right, of Page 13 of the Mirror of Friday, February 26 1971.

Bill’s obituary from The Guardian is posted elsewhere on this site.
