Richard's Poor Almanac, inspired by seven years of weekly contributions to the "Washington Post," is Richard Thompson's omnium-gatherum of seasoned observations for all seasons — indoors and out. Like the almanac we've all come to know and ignore, Richard's Poor Almanac is an annual compendium of weathered wisdom rendered in the more palatable form of cartooning.

From the Publisher:

Richard Thompson’s irreverent and hilarious cartoons have been a mainstay in the pages of The Washington Post for over seven years. Now, they are collected in book form for the first time. RICHARD’S POOR ALMANAC is nothing less than a tonic for the daze ahead.

About the Author:

Richard Thompson is a cartoonist and illustrator living in Virginia with his lovely wife and two daughters. His cartoon Richard ’s Poor Almanac appears weekly in The Washington Post, sometimes in color, but most often not. His work also illustrates Francis Heaney’s Holy Tango of Literature, published by Emmis Humor, and is featured regularly in US News & World Report, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, National Geographic and many other publications. It has also found its way onto gallery walls, won coveted awards such as the Society of Illustrators Gold and Silver Funny Bones, and made enduring presents for his aforementioned lovely wife and two daughters. In 2004, Mr. Thompson took home the Milton F. "Sonny" Clogg Alumni of the Year Award from his alma mater, Montgomery College. (And did he even graduate? No!) Since breaking his toe in a dance-related accident nearly twelve years ago, Mr. Thompson has been forced to draw with his hands.
