Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

'Fact: The Simpsons is the funniest sitcom of all time. There are more gags, more characters, funnier plots, funnier sub-plots'
Loaded

'It is likely to get very high ratings on terrestrial television; Britain is probably heading for a wave of Simpsons mania'

'The wittiest and most literate show on television'
Brenda Maddox, The Times

3.0 out of 5 stars Simpsons Lite: thanks for the memories, but not for the substance 17 Jun. 2007
By R S Cobblestone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an oversized book, allegedly for the tabletop or for mounting your favorite pictures on the wall. The 50 poster-pictures cover a variety of topics and characters, from spoofs on other movies/books (Forrest Gump, Star Wars, Lady and the Tramp), to collages of "action shots," particularly of Bart and Homer.

My favorites were three: an "Orion-esque" constellation of the Simpsons family eyes, Psychedelic Marge, and "Homer the Hutt."

For those who count these things, Homer is in his underwear on three posters, Bart is mooning on two, and there are two wedgies.

Usually there are few or no words, but there is Ralph Wiggum's pledge of allegiance:

"I fudge a legions,
To the flack,
Of the enlightened
Skates of a merry cup.
And two derrick public,
Four witches dance,
One Asian,
Underground,
In the visible,
With liver tea and
Just us for owl."

Two complaints. First, the large sprinkled doughnut appearing on both the front and back cover does not appear as a poster. Second, as a "poster book," I'd really have liked the book to be on better quality paper, and worthy of matting and framing. Perhaps "Simpsons art" is better located elsewhere. There are a bunch of pricey art celluloid (cel) pieces available. Perhaps this particular book should be renamed "Simpsons art for the unwashed masses."

5.0 out of 5 stars A near must have 10 April 2013
By Major Miner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These posters are printed on a nice and sturdy paper stock , have great content and a collectors dream. My only problem I have is that the posters are a little smallish (11x14) , but on the bright side I can cover an entire wall with many different scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars many posters 19 Mar. 2013
By artigar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has a lot of posters depicting The Simpsons in varies manners for example there is a Planet of the Apes and Wizard of Oz poster. My favorite one is Homer sleeping on a hammock. Worth buying to decorate a wall.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great poster book, good quality and decent size! Perfect for Simpsons fans! 8 July 2016
By Elina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend who is a huge Simpsons fan. I also gave him some other gifts but this one was the one he was most excited about. He tends to like the old Simpsons better so he was happy that they had posters referencing older episodes (something about Bart's shirt being Blue???). Anyway, I'm definitely happy with this purchase. The quality of the posters is really nice too.

If you buy this as a gift, keep in mind that there is a printed price on the back of the book. So even if you mark it as a gift when you purchase it on Amazon, the recipient is still going to be able to see the price.
