All of This is for You is balm for anyone feeling lost and detached from today’s confusing, hectic world. In her heartfelt notes, Ruby Jones reminds us that even when times are tough, it remains important to be kind and gentle with ourselves and those around us.
Jones received worldwide recognition after she posted an illustration of two women—one of them a Muslim wearing a hijab—embracing after the 2019 Christchurch terrorist attacks. The image was accompanied by an extraordinary message of empathy and understanding: "This is your home and you should have been safe here."
A beacon of hope and kindness, All of This is for You is for every one of us, because no matter the individual issue—whether it’s self-image, identity, depression, grief, or anxiety—we all struggle with challenges. Jones's soothing insights are a breath of fresh air during tough times, and a reminder of humanity's inherent and enduring goodness.

“Go Fish is that rarest of creatures: an essential collection of political cartoons.” —David Rees, author of Get Your War On This volume of cartoons from the revered Mr. Fish (aka Dwayne Booth) spans politics, popular culture, economic disaster, and much more, and nobody—right, left, or middle—is safe from his razor-edged satire. Included are cartoons never previously published as well as original essays by Mr. Fish, whose work has appeared in such venues as Harper’s Magazine, Truthdig, the Los Angeles Times, TheAtlantic, and Vanity Fair. “Fish’s work makes you want to do something—even if you’re not entirely sure what that something is—to change things for the better, and the feeling stays with you long after the book is closed.” —Verbicide Magazine “A vibrant example of political cartooning as it is practiced at its heights. . . . Anyone who thinks political cartooning is stale need only take a closer look at this body of work. . . . Certifiably brilliant.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
