It's Not How It Looks is the 27th annual collection from South Africa’s legendary cartoonist Zapiro. And it’s set to be yet another best seller as his cartoons brilliantly capture the craziness of yet another wild year in South Africa … and the world. It's Not How It Looks covers the sweep of twelve months of momentous events through Zapiro’s piercing eye and his sharp pen. His award-winning cartoons make you laugh out loud while often wincing at the same time. Now more than ever, his work is important, relevant and hugely entertaining. Zapiro says his main challenge is keeping pace with the constant chaos of life in SA: "Every time I think things cannot get any weirder they go and get twice as weird. Not even my crazy mind could invent a country where, at the same time, we have the devastating final Zondo report delivered (late), two Gupta brothers finally arrested and a brazenly crooked ex spy chief revealing that millions of dollars in cash has been stolen from Cyril’s game farm. And that’s just one week of our lives! While overseas Putin’s making a mad war, Boris is being completely Boris and the US Supreme Court goes back fifty years on women’s rights." Zapiro’s annual collections always make for excellent gifts as they provide both an historical and hysterical record of our turbulent times.

Mask on! Mask off! Covid restrictions might be lifted, but the infectious laughter continues! Madam & Eve, South Africa’s favourite and longest-running comic strip, takes a satirical look back at yet another roller coaster year of Covid-19 lockdowns, Eskom load shedding, corrupt and inept politicians, Zondo Commission reports, Home Affairs queues, a burning parliament and millions hidden in presidential farm furniture… Join the beloved cast of Madam, Eve, Mother Anderson and Thandi, and a host of supporting characters, as they unmask the funny side of daily life in this mad country that is South Africa. Proving, once again, that laughter IS the best vaccine in these challenging times. Written and drawn by Stephen Francis and Rico Schacherl, Madam & Eve has been tickling South Africa’s national funny bone since 1992!

Welcome back to Clarkson's Farm. At the end of Jeremy's first year in the tractor's driving seat, Diddly Squat farm rewarded him with a profit of just GBP144. So, while he's the first to admit that he's still only a 'trainee farmer'*, there is clearly still work to be done. Because while he's mastered the art of moaning about nearly everything, some of the other attributes required of a successful farmer prove more of a challenge. Who knew, for instance, that loading a grain trailer was more demanding than flying an Apache gunship? That cows were more dangerous than motor-racing? Or that it would have been easier to get planning permission build a nuclear power station than to turn an old barn into a farm restaurant? But if the council planning department and the local red trouser brigade seem determine to frustrate his schemes at every turn, at least he's got Lisa, Kaleb, Cheerful Charlie and Gerald, his dry-stone-walling Head of Security to see him through. And cold beer brewed with spring barley harvested from Diddly Squat's own fields. Life on Clarkson's Farm may not always go according to plan. There may not always be one. But there's not a day goes by when Jeremy can't say 'I've done a thing' and mean it ... * generous, in Kaleb's view

Welcome to Jeremy's farm. It's an idyllic spot, offering picturesque views across the Cotswolds, bustling hedgerows, woodlands and natural springs. Jeremy always liked the idea being a farmer. But, while he was barrelling around the world having more fun with cars than was entirely reasonable, it seemed obvious that the actual, you know, farming was much better left to someone else. Then one day he decided he would do the farming himself. After all, how hard could it be? Well . . . Faced with suffocating red tape, biblical weather, local objections, a global pandemic and his own frankly staggering ignorance of how to 'do farming', Jeremy soon realises that turning the farm around is going to take more than splashing out on a massive tractor. Fortunately, there's help at hand from a large and (mostly) willing team, including girlfriend Lisa, Kaleb the Tractor Driver, Cheerful Charlie, Ellen the Shepherd and Gerald, his Head of Security and Dry Stone Waller. Between them they enthusiastically cultivate crops, rear livestock and hens, keep bees, bottle spring water and open a farm shop. But profits remain elusive. And yet while the farm may be called Diddly Squat for good reason, Jeremy soon begins to understand that it's worth a whole lot more to him than pounds, shillings and pence . . .

No little thorn in the flesh or irritating fly in the ointment, Zapiro just cannot be ignored.
It's been another helluva year, and who better to make sense of it than Zapiro, political analyst, cartoonist and agent provocateur. He has the ability to knock the air out of us, to rock us back in our seats, to force us to bolt upright with a 1000-watt jolt of electrifying shock. He makes us angry, he makes us laugh and he makes us think. He shines a light on the elephant in the room, presents the emperor in all his naked glory.

Impossible to brush off, he is determined to provoke a response. When all around is crumbling, when fake news and zipped lips conceal the truth, Zapiro comes to the rescue. With the dissecting eye of a surgeon, the rapier-like point of his pen exposes flimflam and reveals with a line what lies behind the action.

To mark the tenth anniversary of the smash-hit 50 People Who Stuffed Up South Africa, the original 50 People team brings you an all-new sequel: 50 People Who F***ed Up South Africa: The Lost Decade. As witty, enlightening and entertaining as all the franchise books, this Christmas compendium is an eye-watering indictment of our tragicomic “last lost decade”, a time of ruinous and unprecedented national decline. Whereas it took more than 350 years to come up with the list of shame for the first book, they needed just ten more for the next 50 names, from Shaun Abrahams to Zuma, Zuma and Zuma. Shot through with the architects and beneficiaries of state capture – Magashula, Mahlobo, Mahumapelo, and not forgetting the Guptas – it is also features crisp takedowns of the individuals who represent the standout scandals in this time: the like of Nkandla, Marikana, Life Esidimeni, Steinhoff, Bosasa and VBS Mutual Bank. The end result is a readable, accessible overview of the South Africa’s recent political and socioeconomic landscape. Because sometimes humour and a clearly painted picture really is the best coping mechanism…

Struggling to realize your full procrastination potential? Finally, a primer for procrastinators has arrived. Not Now is an illustrated instruction manual that teaches novice and advanced procrastinators how to dally, dawdle, and lollygag their way to expert-level procrastination. Starting with simple exercises, such as 'sit' and 'pace,' instructions gradually advance in complexity and futility 'learn how to write in your non-dominant hand,' 'color coordinate your bookshelves to look like a Pantone color guide'-and eventually reach master level: 'learn a new language by correspondence course, pack your bags, and move to another country.'

Die boek is as't ware 'n aaneenlopende strokiesprent van Suid- Afrika se wel en wee oor die afgelope vyf dekades - dit dek alles van groot politieke storms en sportdramas tot omstrede figure en huismoles.

In sy sketse wys Fred ook die alledaagse dinge wat mense raak. Die droogtes en die landreën, inflasie wat elke keer net-net voor die verbruiker by die petrolpomp opdaag, die Springbokke wat verloor en dan weer wen. Fred het tussendeur ook vir Landbouweekblad, Huisgenoot, Weg! en dosyne ander publikasies geteken. Sy humor is kurkdroog, sy sketse komies - en soms ontstellend, maar altyd só bekend.

WTF is renowned cartoonist Zapiro's account of the Zuma years in 400 brilliant cartoons and the stories behind them. It is much more than a collection of cartoons, it's also a definitive personal record from a man uniquely positioned to reflect the serious craziness and the crazy seriousness of this bewildering time in our history. Zapiro's career has been tightly entwined with the tale of Jacob Zuma for more than twenty years. He has sharply charted his rise and fall, and everything in between, including the corrupting presence of the Guptas and the destructive cancer of state capture. And he created the iconic showerhead which has become a nationally known symbol of Zuma. WTF recounts the many times the cartoonist was threated by senior political figures because of his caustic and brilliant work, as well as the two lawsuits totaling R22m he was served with by Zuma. Zapiro's cartoons stand as an essential, bitter-sweet testimonial which captures Jacob Zuma and the wild ride he took the nation on. It also reflects and explains the significant presence Zuma still has in our politics.

It's been one helluva year - again. We've seen Zuma resign as president, the DA go after its own people, Trump exercise his megalomania, the rise of racial tensions (as well as the petrol price) and tempers being flared. All while the Guptas fled the Saxonwold Shebeen.
