Caricature Cartoon Canada is “the best of the best”: a brilliant collection of personal favourites from Canada’s best cartoonists, published in both official languages. In it, editor and legendary Montreal Gazette cartoonist Terry Mosher (Aislin) has provided notes on the history of Canadian cartooning and an unforgettable snapshot of contemporary Canadian concerns and attitudes – some quite controversial – illustrated through the wit and wisdom of the country’s premier cartoonists.
Aislin (Terry Mosher), one of Canada’s most beloved and prolific cartoonists, was inducted in the Canadian Cartoonists’ Hall of Fame in May 2012. This year marks his 70th birthday and his 40th year publishing acerbic and often hilarious cartoons in the Montreal Gazette. He has won two National Newspaper Awards and five individual prizes from the international Salon of Caricature. Mosher is a member of the Canadian News Hall of Fame and an Officer of the Order of Canada, and he holds an honorary Doctor of Letters from McGill University. Was It Good For You? is his 45th book. He’s aiming for 50. For more information, visit http://www.aislin.com.
“The name Aislin is derived from a Gaelic word meaning ‘dream’, but to many of the more dubious members of Canada’s political class, Aislin is something more of a nightmare. It’s a name that has become synonymous with biting political satire and razor-sharp wit. But more importantly he is Canada’s most celebrated shit disturber. – Rick Mercer
