Some penguins, a monkey, John Major's Y-fronts and Steve Bell

Steve Bell's cartoons have brightened the Guardian since 1981. We have long admired his work, and were chuffed to bits when he let us use his cartoons for the covers of Common Ownership: Clause IV and the Labour Party and a whole string of issues of The Spokesman, beginning with The Third Way to the Servile State. On Sunday 22nd June he will be at Lowdham to give an illustrative talk about his work.

The Lowdham Book Festival is in its ninth year. It runs from Friday 20th to Saturday 28th June2008 and features a whole host of guest speakers, musicians and workshops. On Saturday 28th the largest book fair in the county will be in full swing and we at Spokesman Books will have a stall selling a range of our titles including many issues of The Spokesman which feature Steve Bell's cartoons.

We hope to see you there!
