Drawing on Zapiro’s astonishing range of cartoons of Madiba (as Nelson Mandela is affectionately known in South Africa) from the late 1980s to the present, this handsome book is political cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro’s personal tribute to the great man of our time. In addition to the classic cartoons there are personal anecdotes about Zapiro’s first political cartoons, his meetings with Madiba, commentary on the stories and inspiration behind the cartoons, and the responses Zapiro has had to his Madiba drawings. There are doodles and sketches, as well as hand-colored works and black-and-white cartoons. The book is beautifully presented in hardback and is a treasured piece of memorabilia.
