Sue Baker's view...

A brand new selection of the best of the Giles cartoons, the theme of this year’s collection is regional life and in these 150 images day-to-day life of the recent path is portrayed in all its eccentricity. Featuring the family and “the Gran” though to political commentary and intricate observations on life in general - an ideal Christmas gift showcasing the genius of Giles.

Synopsis

Giles the Collection by

Perennial bestseller and a Christmas gift guaranteed to make dad and grandad chortle, this is a brand-new collection of 150 Giles cartoons. A witty and clever examination of the vagaries and quirks of all aspects of British life, it confirms Giles' reputation as the 20th century's greatest cartoonist. This superb collection demonstrates that his perceptive take on life is as relevant today as when the cartoons were first published. In this collection, Giles invites his fans to join him in his caravan on a riotous journey around England, Scotland and Wales. Taken from the Express and -- Express archives, 150 cartoons provide a tour of the quirks and joys of regional life. The artworks cover everyday scenes from Britain's recent past, with a tongue-in-cheek approach to politics, the media and popular culture. Brilliantly witty and full of irreverent fun, this compilation is the ideal addition to your Giles collection.
