First published in 1914, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is Robert Tressell's witty masterpiece about class war, said by George Orwell to be 'a book everyone should read'. It has been turned into a graphic novel by author and illustrator team Sophie and Scarlett Rickard, two sisters with connections to the creative scene in Folkestone. They talk to author, scriptwriter and political activist Julie Wassmer about their amazing best-selling project.
Scarlett and her dad Simon used to publish The Quarter, a magazine focusing on the creative people and businesses in Folkestone in the early 2000s. Scarlett is a graphic designer; Sophie is a writer and teller of stories.
