Grace your coffee table with THE COMPLETE FAR SIDE

Two volumes, forty pounds of paper, and an unknown number of cows went into the making of this book.

By Patrick Sauriol     December 23, 2003

If you're still looking for something to give the person who has everything for Christmas, maybe you've found it with THE COMPLETE FAR SIDE collection. This mammoth two-volume tome assembles every FAR SIDE panel created by cartoonist Gary Larson during the 14-year run of his popular newspaper strip. And it doubles as a exercise set too: each of the coffeetable volumes weighs a little over 20 pounds!

Larson's amusing panels are presented in chronological order along with letters from fans, memos from his editors, hate mail and notes from readers perplexed by what they just read. The 1,266-page (!) collection also features 1,100 FAR SIDE panels that haven't appeared in any earlier compilations plus an essay by Larson before each year's worth of cartoons.

With a forward by Steve Martin, the two-volume THE COMPLETE FAR SIDE collection is a must-have for true fans of THE FAR SIDE -- or those looking to get their arms into shape for the New Year. It's priced at $150.00.
