The Best of Zapiro’s 2014 Cartoons Collected in It’s Code Red!

It's Code Red!New book from Jacana, It’s Code Red!, the latest collection of cartoons from Zapiro:

Zapiro needs no introduction. His 19th annual speaks for itself. No year would be complete without Zapiro’s annual collection of cartoons, and in this latest book of sharp-witted and well-timed cartoons, Zapiro once again proves himself a satirical genius, ensuring that no event passes by without comment … or a laugh.

“Zapiro makes a five-course meal of each and every cartoon-worthy moment, which we seem to have in abundance in SA.”Business Day

“Zapiro’s eye for the follies and foibles of us all, not only those of us in South Africa, is as sharp as ever.”Mercury

About the author

Born in Cape Town, Zapiro – aka Jonathan Shapiro – studied architecture at UCT before moving to the art campus, Michaelis. Following his two-year conscription in the army, he applied for and was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study cartooning at the School of Visual Arts in New York for two years.

The name Zapiro was derived from the nickname of a fellow pupil at Rondebosch Boys’ High School, Martin Szapiro, whose friends called him Zap. After Martin’s death, Zapiro adopted the name.
