Best Of Britain’s Political Cartoons 2013 Paperback – 7 Nov 2013
by Tim Benson (ed) (Author)
Curated by Tim Benson, Britain’s leading political-cartoon expert, this inaugural edition of The Best of Britain’s Political Cartoons is a comprehensive and hilarious look at the last 12 months of British life including the Olympics, the Leveson Inquiry, and the horsemeat scandal. A tribute to the art, power, and intelligence of our finest cartoonists working today, such as Steve Bell, Chris Riddell, Peter Brookes, and many more, The Best of Britain’s Political Cartoons 2013 is sure to be the perfect collection for the curious mind.
The best way to see 2012 and 2013 is to see it through the eyes of cartoonists they strike at the high and the mighty, the proud and the pompous – David Cameron as a condom, Ed Miliband as Wallace and Grommit, and Nick Clegg as a fag. It is brilliant, witty and acerbic –Lord Baker
