Few contemporaries captured Britain’s indomitable wartime spirit as well or as wittily as the cartoonist Carl Giles. Now, for the first time, the very best of the cartoons he produced between 1939 and 1945 are brought together, including many that have not seen the light of day in over 75 years. As a young cartoonist at Reynold’s News and then the Daily Express, Giles's work provided a crucial morale boost – and much-needed laughs – to a population suffering daily privations and danger, and Giles's War shows why. Here are his often hilarious takes on the great events of the war – from the Fall of France, via D-Day, to the final Allied victory – but also his wryly amusing depictions of ordinary people in extraordinary times, living in bombed-out streets, dealing with food shortages, coping with blackouts, railing against bureaucracy and everyday annoyances. It's a brilliantly funny chronicle of our nation’s finest hour, as well as a fitting tribute to one of our greatest cartoonists.

COLLECTION OF SURREAL AND HILARIOUS CARTOONS BY THE PROLIFIC BRITISH CARTOONIST, ILLUSTRATOR & CARTOON EDITOR OF THE SPECTATOR The 21st century has most cartoonists stumped. How on earth do you satirize these crazy times? Michael Heath, almost alone among his peers, has succeeded. His uncanny ability to spot emerging trends has made his "Battle for Britain" strip both very funny and oddly prophetic. Heath uses cartoon characters from yesteryear; men and women from the 1950s, but often distorted and placed in a modern setting. The result is surreal and hilarious; a piece of social commentary that gives us a rare objective look at what we've become.

The beginning of the gospel of Jeremiah, as it is written... Since his unforeseen resurrection from the tepid ashes of the Labour Party in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn has been on a seemingly unstoppable upward trajectory. And one of Britain's best-loved political cartoonists, Steve Bell, has been with him every step of the way. In Corbyn: The Resurrection, Bell has compiled an unmissable selection of his caustically witty cartoons charting the Labour leader's ascension amid the country's best attempts to tear itself apart. From an unforgettable Star Wars pastiche depicting Jez-Bi-Wan Conorbyn's leadership saga, to Bell's savagely gleeful account of the 2017 snap election and beyond, the result is an endlessly entertaining chronicle of Corbyn's path from the 'unelectable' to 'the prime-minister-in-waiting'.
