The author redrew the woodcut-style illustrations to incorporate Telfar clothes, accessories and satirical phrases. In one, two figures ascend to the sky, angel-like, with the words ‘Bye Bitch’ in block capitals; another depicts a brawl with one of the protagonists carrying a Telfar handbag, their feet dancing above the word ‘Bloodshed’.

“The Harlem Renaissance was essentially a PR campaign invented by patrons and publishers,” he continues. Gisele Bündchen: a model life?

How to treat a minor burn

You want to cool the burn to reduce the chances of more of the skin being damaged or injured in deeper layers. There are some caveats, though. For instance, if you have a small child with a large burn, putting them under cool running water for 20 minutes will make them very cold. The idea is to keep the rest of the patient warm, so wrap them up in a blanket or something similar, and only cool the affected area. If you are worried about the burn, or if you have developed blisters or the skin colour has changed after you have cooled it down, lightly cover the injured area with plastic wrap, such as cling film.

If you have a burn injury, keep the area dressed and clean. Andrew Williams is an executive committee member of the British Burn Association and a consultant burns and plastic surgeon at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital.
