Every Christmas for more than 25 years, the editors of Viz have cobbled together a hardback annual out of all the best bits from a year's worth of Britain's funniest magazine, stuck a colourful picture on the front and called it something vaguely off-colour. Over the years, these annuals have become as much part of the traditional British Christmas as the Queen's speech, turkey with all the trimmings and clostridium botulinum. This annual continues the tried and tested formula, bringing together the standout moments from the past 12 months.
"The best book ... that I or anyone else will ever read. Truly magnificent," writes Matt Ridley in the Daily Telegraph. "A remarkable and powerful book," adds The Evening Standard's Dylan Evans. "Witty, lucid, and ultimately enthralling," says Robert McCrum in the Observer. Whilst according to Richard Dawkins, "Reading this book is one of the biggest favours I've ever done my brain." Sadly, these aren't reviews for Viz: The Dutch Oven - we found them on the back of a book by the distinguished cognitive scientist Steven Pinker. But we've got high hopes that the critics will praise this hard-backed collection of the best bits from issues 212~221 of Britain's toiletest magazine in an equally forthright fashion. Viz: The Dutch Oven's 160 pages of foul-mouthed cartoons, satirical features and spoof adverts make it the ideal gift for anyone you're not prepared to spend more than about 11 quid on.
Twixlips & Mooseknuckle are proud to announce Viz - The Camel's Toe a luxurious limited edition* annual that will stand as a timeless testament to your taste and discernment and is certain to be treasured for generations to come. (*Edition strictly limited to the number of copies that can be printed using the huge job lot of paper and ink we have bought.)Bound within glossy covers hewn from 24-carat cardboard, each exquisite volume contains a lavish 160 pages, individually hand-printed with an heirloom-quality selection of cartoons, jokes, spoof ads and articles from issues 202 to 211 of Britain's 3rd or 4th funniest magazine. 5th if you include Practical Caravanning.

From the playground to the boardroom, this lexicon of bad language makes, arguably, a more important contribution to the everyday vocabulary of the British Isles than the Oxford dictionary. Now, with over 10,000 entries, this edition features the latest in expletives, sexual obscenities and lavatorial euphemisms.
Published shortly before the author's death in 1919, The Journal of a Disappointed Man presents a remarkable memoir that addresses struggles with poverty, inadequate education, and the creeping paralysis of multiple sclerosis. Yet author W. N. P. Barbellion manages to write with uplifting eloquence and passion of his love for family, natural history, music, and literature. Told with a thoroughly modern voice, the unjustly overlooked Journal is reprinted here with its posthumous successor, A Last Diary. This edition features a thoughtful Introduction by H. G. Wells, who writes of the book's "exquisite beauty." W. N. P. Barbellion (1889–1919), whose real name was Bruce Frederick Cummings, was a naturalist who worked in the Entomology Department of London's Natural History Museum. Upon attempting to enlist in the British Army during World War I, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The discovery of his disease intensified the tenor of his journal-keeping, and his frank and articulate reflections on coping with a fatal illness remain a powerful testament to his life and struggles.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was Bollocks. And Roger Mellie looked upon the Word and saw that it was good. And he said, let there be more Words. And lo, readers of Viz did send in a multitude of words, four thousand of them, arranged in more-or-less alphabetical order. And Roger spake, saying, there, that's probably enough for a brand fucking new Roger's Profanisaurus.
