Annus Horribilis…

October 29, 2009

I’ve just been sent a copy of Ann Treneman’s latest book, Annus Horribilis – The Worst Year in British Politics.
It’s a collection of her brilliant Parliamentary sketches for The Times from the last year, so that ought to be a good read!

I was lucky enough to do the book jacket for it, and to Gibson Square Publishing’s credit, I was given surprisingly free reins, which made it a pleasure to do.

Below are some pictures of the book and the original design.

I’ve mentioned the excellent True Blue – Strange Tales from a Tory Nation before, when was published earlier this year. Here are some pictures of that book too.

Despite having stated only a few days ago on fellow cartoonist Royston Robertson’s blog, that I’m avoiding Dalek cartoons these days, I ended up doing one for today’s Times. I even had a stairs gag in my original idea (see below), but the oh so boring point that “Daleks can fly up stairs,” has reached the Powers in Wapping, so there was no comedy potential in my pile of striking postal workers.
