Since 2010, Martin Rowson has been documenting the highs and lows - mainly the lows - of the Tory-Lib Dem coalition week after week in The Guardian, as well as in The Morning Star, Tribune and many other publications. This book collects Rowson's best, most brutally funny, cartoons from a period that began with a "big, open, comprehensive offer" to Nick Clegg, continued on through riots, phone-hacking, double-dip recession, and endless debates on Europe, and will end (perhaps) with the general election in 2015. Accompanied by witty explanatory text, The Coalition Book takes a biting satirical look at Cameron and Clegg's first - and perhaps last - five years in charge. The book contains a foreword by Will Self


Advance Praise

"An inky ninja running riot in the corridors of power..." Phill Jupitus.


"Martin Rowson is a good friend, exceedingly bad enemy. Cameron and Clegg deserve his ConDemNation." Kevin Maguire


"Martin Rowson? Best cartoonist working in the UK today. When you've got a vicious bunch of cut throats in power you need cartoonist who is up for the evisceration. Rowson's your man." Mark Thomas


"Martin Rowson's cartoons aren't just all sorts of comic genius - their exposure of the wrongdoings of those with power make you want to have a revolution and thus pose a mortal danger to the status quo." Owen Jones


"Sending excoriating Exocets straight down at our current leaders, Martin Rowson is a great draughtsman and a sharply well-informed political critic with a wicked eye for detail as well as for the big picture." Polly Toynbee


"REVOLUTION! Get Martin Rowson's genius work in front of every pair of eyes in the country, and revolution will surely follow...it's seditious, acerbic, masterly, and TRUE! And a thing of deep, dark beauty. Should be a compulsory text." Pete Wylie, The Mighty Wah!
