Author: Viz Magazine
A Toe-Curling Stack of the Best Bits from Issues 242-251 Mankind's constant need to do better - to climb higher, strive harder and travel further and faster - has been the unstoppable engine of progress that has driven our species on to ever greater achievements since we first crawled out of the primordial soup. Today we think nothing of travelling through space to the furthest edges of our solar system, building giant glass and steel skyscrapers that pierce the clouds, or communicating with people on the other side of the world in the blink of an eye using a smartphone no bigger than an iPod. We have harnessed the power of the wind, the sun and the atom to do our bidding, and our disposable razors increase their number of blades seemingly on a daily basis. Now a thrilling new chapter of Homo sapiens's inspirational story of progress opens with the release of Viz - The Jester's Shoes. For this year's Viz book is the BIGGEST EVER ANNUAL we have ever published! Ever! Viz - The Jester's Shoes is the 33rd annual from Britain's funniest magazine, and is a fantastic 25% bigger than its predecessors, it is a 200-page romp through the best of issues 242 to 251, including...

Viz - The Jester's Shoes will surely go down in history - alongside the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer - as one of the most important milestones in over 6 million years of human evolution. And unlike the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer, it also makes an ideal gift for someone in that difficult �10 to �15 bracket.
