Praise for The Simpsons:
'One is speechless in the face of their genius'
Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
'Fact: The Simpsons is the funniest sitcom of all time. There are more gags, more characters, funnier plots, funnier sub-plots'
'It is likely to get very high ratings on terrestrial television; Britain is probably heading for a wave of Simpsons mania'
Independent On Sunday
'The wittiest and most literate show on television'
Brenda Maddox, The Times

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,
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."
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.
