Giles The Collection 2020

****The nation's favourite cartoonist - Express****Giles enthusiasts will delight in this brand-new collection of classic cartoons filled with his inimitable style of dry wit and British eccentricity. The 2020 annual takes a look at the tiny details which the 20th century's leading cartoonist filled his artworks.

Centring on the archetypal dysfunctional cartoon family, Giles expert John Field encourages you to look beyond the main action and revel in the detail. Fans of Giles will be delighted to receive the latest annual compilation featuring 150 cartoons to enjoy from the archives of one of the most celebrated cartoonists of the once biggest selling daily newspaper in the world, the Daily Express, whose work led to him being voted the best cartoonist of the 20th century.
