Britain’s Best Political Cartoons 2015 Paperback – International Edition, February 23, 2016 by Tim Benson (Editor)
A fascinating and endlessly entertaining look at the best of the past year’s political cartoons.
Britain’s Best Political Cartoons 2015 is a compelling, razor-sharp and frequently hilarious collection of almost 200 of the year’s most acerbic and insightful political cartoons. All the highs and lows of the past year are covered: from major international events (the conflicts in the Middle East, Greece’s continuing crisis), to more local issues (such as the Scottish Independence vote, the fluctuating fortunes of UKIP and, of course, the 2015 General Election) — not to mention the offbeat and bizarre (Boris Johnson’s hair, Ed Miliband’s taste in sandwiches).
With contributions from Britain’s finest cartoonists, including Steve Bell, Peter Brookes, Dave Brown, Chris Riddell and Martin Rowson, it’s the perfect bedside book — and a browser’s delight.
