The annual collection of Jonathan Shapiro's (Zapiro) cartoons, published since 1996.

"Zapiro is by far South Africa's most loved and, might I add, vilified cartoonist. Loved, because he's our collective voice of reason. And vilified, well, because he's our collective voice of reason." Brett Murray, artist

In 2012 Zapiro received the International Publishers Association (IPA) Freedom to Publish Prize, as well as the Standard Bank Sikuvile Newspaper Journalism Award for Editorial Cartooning. In 2013 he was named as one of City Press's "100 World Class South Africans". He is also being honoured for his contributions to press freedom and social commentary with the renaming of a street in Guguletu, Cape Town, as Zapiro Lane.
