Britain's Best Political Cartoons 2017


Formats & editions


Another blockbuster collection of the year’s wittiest political cartoons, featuring artworks by Steve Bell, Peter Brookes, Martin Rowson, ‘Mac’ and many more

Britain’s Best Political Cartoons 2017 offers a pictorial whistle-stop tour of a year in which, among many other things, Brexit became a way of life, the general election that wasn’t supposed to happen happened and the world became obsessed with 140-character messages from the US president. Celebrating the best drawings by our very finest cartoonists, it’s a superbly sharp and witty record of an extraordinary twelve months, complete with scheming Russian presidents, militaristic North Korean leaders, and the occasional scary clown.

Praise for Britain's Best Political Cartoons 2017

“[The] masters – Adams, Bell, Brookes, Brown, Jennings (Ben), Morland, Riddell and Rowson – have responded to the politics of the year with lacerating satire and [a] rich variety of highly individual graphic styles.”
