"The Best of Punch Cartoons" is a superb book. It is the biggest collection of cartoons ever published from the most famous humour magazine of them all, and is packed with superb gags and beautiful artwork by some of the world's finest artists of the past two centuries. The page size is huge, showing the cartoon art off in the best possible manner. And at more than 600 pages, this book is an essential purchase for any fan of cartoons, visual humour or of the legendary "Punch" magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great laugh! 18 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was brought up on Punch, as my father subscribed to it for many years, and so this large volume of cartoons brings back many happy memories. Of course the cartoons are enjoyable in their own right, too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Punch cartoon book 13 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very disappointing. I bought this book at christmas for a friend who was doing a presentation paper about the great exhibitionwhich the writeup said was illustrated in the book. So I was disappoited to find only one rather poor cartoon about it. .
The book was disppointing and not what I thought it would be.
