the book begines with a breef intrudaction of the artist history as a cartoonist, and continues with full page illustrations, mostly black and white illustration, with a few colored ones.

in a whole it is a very extensive collection of works from a wonderful illustrator, and a must have to any one who likes cartoons and illustration.
