A brilliant compilation of cartoons which some never seen sketches. In the words of Sir Tim Rice: â€œDay after day Mac brightens the morning with wit and superb draughtsmanship, sometimes making a serious point, sometimes an hilarious one, often both at once. You don't have to believe me, but after you've taken even the briefest look at the wonderful artistry reproduced herein, you will.â€
Stanley McMurtry was born in Edinburgh. Attended Birmingham College of Art (1950-53) which was interrupted in 1954 by two years of national service in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps. A freelance cartoonist working under his own name on childrenâ€™s comics Wham! and Buster and Punch.
Under his pen name Mac and for over 46 years, Mac amuses the nation with his cartoons for the Daily Mail. He was granted an MBE by HM The Queen in 2003 for "services to the newspaper industry".
â€œMac is, quite simply, Britainâ€™s greatest living cartoonist. Macâ€™s humour is warm,â€
Paul Dacre, Editor of the Daily Mail
â€œIn terms of the quality of his drawing and the quickness of his wit, I reckon Mac is without equal.
He is a cartoonist of genius.â€ Gyles Brandreth
Book is fantastic
