Product Description

Review

"Giles is an extremely popular winner across the generations. His books are still selling well after more than 50 years and his humour is not stuck in any particular time frame. He appeals to a very wide cross-section of the public" - Paul Gravett, Projects Director of the British Cartoon Trust.

Book Description

With over 60 series of Giles - The Collection in circulation, this annual has proven itself as a highly-popular and timeless book that continues to sell well across generations. This brand new compilation includes 150 cartoons. Giles' reputation as one of the country's best-loved cartoonists was confirmed when he was posthumously given his own exhibition at the Cartoon Museum in London in 2008, along with the honour of being named the 20th century's greatest cartoonist by visitors to the British Cartoon Centre in London.

I wish Amazon would stop using the American dating system when they let me know on what date I purchased the item I'm reviewing. However, Giles needs no comment from me. His cartoons are examples of wit and skill that remind me of a Britain that's sadly long gone. I can always pick up a Giles and go through it again and marvel at some aspect of a cartoon that i hadn't noted before. Simply wonderful

This Giles collection has been purchased as a Xmas present but as I have bought previous collections in the past I know that the recipient will get a lot of pleasure from the book. The cartoons are hilarious and bring back memories of the time they represent.

For the last few years I have been collecting the Giles Annuals going back over the last 40-50 years. It's become a tradition in my family the we get the Giles Annual each year to wrap and place under the Christmas Tree. My parents were born and raised around Manchester, UK and the Giles cartoons were a regular source of humor and laughs through out the years. I was introduced to them as a child and now it's become a hobby of mine to collect the annuals (I currently have over 30 of them). The 2012 collection is great, though it does have a few cartoons that were in recent annuals for the last 5 years. I look forward to the tradition continuing for many years to come as each fall I eagerly await the release of the next Gile Annual! Cheers!

I can't really review this because I bought it as a present. But I think the Giles characters are always funny to read and very topical (at the time). They are also a good source of social history. We can see how things were in the day to day life of ordinary folk.

Really liked this but some of the jokes were 50 years old and i didnt know what was happening in the news at the time so didnt get them,but if you look at the pictures there is just as much funny things going on in the background.

I have the original but got this one to the others, even though he is dead his cartoons still make me laugh, so if your feeling down just a read of one of his anuals should buck you up.
