Product description

'Every day a witty, sharp gem of social comment ...his brilliant work is the yardstick by which the rest are judged' Terry Wogan Matt started drawing his much-loved cartoons for the Daily Telegraph in 1988. Now, in addition to the best of 2008, multi-award-winning cartoonist, Matt has taken a look back over the last twenty years and chosen his favourites. His cartoons are on the front page of the Daily Telegraph and three slots on Sundays, giving his own take on the world we live in. From the often-absurd world of politics, to sport, the beleaguered heath service and seemingly endless transport traumas, Matt takes a unique and brilliantly entertaining look at life, giving it a brighter, funnier twist. 'That rare thing: a daily cartoonist who never fails' The Times.

Author information

Matt studied at St Martin's School of Art in London and first saw himself published in the New Statesman during one of its rare lapses from high seriousness. He has been the Daily Telegraph's pocket cartoonist since 1988. In 1995, 1996, 1999, 2005 and 2006 he was the winner of the Cartoon Art Trust Pocket Cartoonist of the Year Award and in 1991, 2004 and 2006 he was 'What the Papers Say' Cartoonist of the Year. He is also four times winner of the UK Press Gazette Cartoonist of the Year, most recently in 2008, and in 2002 he received an MBE.

Review quote

"If [Matt] is beloved of readers, it is because he understands readers, shares their concerns and relates to their irritations" DAILY TELEGRAPH "Matt is a humorist who goes straight for the jocular vein" -- Kathy Lette "Matt is the best of all cartoonists" -- William Hague "Matt is the Don Bradman of daily cartoonists -- so much greater than his rivals it's almost embarrassing" -- Stephen Fry "Matt is one of the first things I turn to in the morning papers" -- David Cameron "Picking your favourite Matt cartoon is like picking your favourite limb" -- Jeremy Clarkson
