Introduction by - Various - 10 Contributors
'His superb draughtsmanship
coupled with a flair for social satire make him a present-day Hogarth.'
'He always manages to hit the nail on the head but in such a funny way. He is my favourite cartoonist by far.'
'In his superb understanding of human behaviour no one can touch him. He never overstates. He has an instinctive ability to put down what people are thinking.'
'I like the look on the faces of the characters he draws they are so true to life that they remind me of people I know.'
'He takes the pulse of the country as gently as a nurse and you never feel the injection.'
'He makes me go round showing other people his cartoons as if I had done them myself.'
'In every one of his cartoons he says 'This Is Your Life', and goes right to the core of it.'
'Giles makes the whole world kin. His sense of humour seems to hit it off with everyone. There is no malice.'
'I canít say he just makes me laugh. And anyone that makes me laugh can have my money.'
'Above all he is a first-rate artist. He has a wonderful knowledge of boats and ships, and of the countryside. All this enables him to set the scene and what a scene! As for his characters, why, they're corkers!'
'It is Giles's acute contemporary observation that is outstanding. He has genuine wit without malice that makes most of us his debtors. He draws with a chuckle, not with a snarl.'
'It is the human touch in his cartoons. As a one-time G.I. myself, I get a special kick out of his American servicemen chewing their cigars and with rows of medals. I know the U.S. servicemen over here love them too.'
'And then there are his little children. . .'
