About Giles Cartoons
Carl Giles' cartoons may be seen as a fun way to read about British history. His beloved characters became popular as they portrayed what was going on at the time but drew a smile in people's faces at the same time. Giles' cartoons made the jump from the newspaper strip to other publications, such as Giles Annuals and other books. Among Giles' cartoon books, Giles Annuals are the most sought after by collectors. These annual compilations, produced from 1947 onwards, contain cartoons from the previous year selected by Giles himself. Even though new cartoons and annuals ceased to appear in 1991, from time to time Giles facsimile annuals are produced and collectors use them to fill a gap when they do not have the original from a certain year. If you want to start your own collection, or you need some issues to complete one, eBay is the right place to search. Top-rated Sellers offer Giles' cartoon books in annual sets, original annual issues, rare annual editions, such as those from the first ten years, and other special publications, and you may even get a deal with free delivery.
