Giles The Collection 2020
The bestselling Giles annual is back! Now you can go through the year, month by month, looking at how the 20th century's greatest satirical cartoonist saw events over the years.
****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. Mischievous parrots, tortured teddy bears and hapless hounds can all be found getting into the oddest of scrapes to the side of the main action. 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.
Carl Giles was born in Islington, north London, on 29 September 1916. After leaving school at fourteen, he initially trained in animation before moving into cartoons, when working for Reynolds News. In 1943 Giles moved to the Sunday Express and Daily Express, eventually replacing Strube and becoming the Daily Express "War Correspondent Cartoonist" with the 2nd Army in 1945. Best known for his Express "family", his cartoons had enormous popular appeal and in 1959 he was awarded an OBE. Giles left the Daily Express in 1989 but continued working for the Sunday Express until 1991. He passed away in 1995.
