THE ART OF FOOTROT FLATS showcases the magnificent body of work of New Zealand's greatest cartoonist, Murray Ball, in a beautifully produced volume. This book is not simply a cartoon book. It is, as the title suggests, an art book. While most of Ball's books have relied entirely on the much-loved cartoon strips, which have graced newspapers and magazines all over the world for the past 35 years, The Art of Footrot Flats will be different and very special. Working drawings, colour roughs, most of which never before published, motion picture story boards and some stunning full page colour illustrations will grace the pages of this lavishly produced salute to the most loved cartoon strip. In addition, Murry Ball will provide an illuminating commentary on his work through extended captions.

'It doesn't seem all that long ago that Wal, Cooch, Aunt Dolly, Dog, Horse, Pongo, Rangi and the rest retired from our comics pages, to the chagrin of their fans, but here they are, in all their familiar and humorous glory. Brilliant.' [The Newcastle Herald] 'A reminder of just how succinctly brilliant Ball's tales of lantern-jawed Wal, laconic Dog and Horse, a cat of pure evil, were and remain. Priceless.' [Herald Sun]
