Praise for Britain's Best Political Cartoons 2021

As a compendium that will have you saying, "Oh my God, was that only this year?" quite literally over and over and over again, it can't be beaten. I have to say, having made my way through a second collection, I'm very much looking forward to next year's . . . Rapidly becoming one of the literary highlights of my year.

A wonderful book . . . A beautiful thing to look at . . . Our brilliant cartoonists show there is still something to satirise . . . A great stocking filler.

Giles Coren

A blockbuster collection of the year's funniest political cartoons . . . [compiled by] Britain's leading authority on political cartoons . . . It made us chuckle.
