This book consists of award-winning cartoonist Peter Brookes’ own selection of the best of his illustrations in The Times. Pithy, provocative and brilliantly executived, his cartoons consistently transcend the topical context in which they were created. His famous ‘Before’ and ‘After’ the US boming of Afghanistan illustrations; George W Bush’s ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ map of the world; Gladiator Tony Blair being savaged by a sheep with foot-and-mouth disease; and ‘Good’, ‘Good’, ‘Bad’ sequence of Yasser Arafat, Gerry Adams and Osima Bin Laden – each making the reader laugh whilst giving us pause for thought. Ephemeral works of art – but what ephemera!
