My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The cartoons that are featured in this book cover the period from September 2018 to August 2019: twelve months of turbulent and crazy politics in UK and in the rest of the world. Almost every day provided golden opportunities for satirical cartoonists. The results make wonderful, entertaining reading.
Each cartoon is accompanied by an explanation of the background circumstances.
The author’s introduction to the book gives a very interesting viewpoint of the world of the cartoonist and the dangers involved in their trade.
My daughter-in-law, Anna, bought me this splendid, thought-provoking book as a Christmas  present.
As a teenager, I was a huge fan of Giles. My grandfather, Nandy, had a pile of Giles’s annuals on his coffee table. I still have some of those annuals on my bookshelves and I intend to revisit them in in the coming days.
The book revives those wonderful memories and tells me more about the background of political cartoons and the dependence on editors and on readers’ feedback.
