Russell Taylor
was born in York in 1960. He read Russian at St Anne’s College, Oxford. His first book, co-authored with Marc Polonsky, was “USSR – From an Original Idea by Karl Marx” (Faber 1986) - a humorous guide to the Soviet Union, which earned him what is still the most vituperative review of his career (in Pravda).

Russell met cartoonist Charles Peattie at a Christmas party in 1986 for the magazine Direction on which they both worked. Their first Alex cartoon strip appeared on February 23rd 1987 in the short-lived London Daily News. When that paper folded five months later Alex transferred to the Independent.
