Reviews

 ‘Radcliffe is Australia’s leading archivist of political cartoons … and he gives us all a laugh. More importantly, he gives us a record of our political life in a manner accessible to very wide audience.’ 
— Haydon Manning, Australian Review of Public Affairs

‘About Best Australian Political Cartoons 2011 there seems nothing that can be said with anything approaching the conciseness and sophistication of the finest examples and this year there is an abundance of these again.’
— Simon Caterson, The Age
