/ Lead title An exciting new collection of cartoons that celebrate the beauty of booze, proving that in life, as in all things, all you need is love, gin and tonic. / Published in conjunction with three other Vimrod titles: 'Shopping', 'Drink' and 'Farts'. Four more books will follow in the next 12 months. / Vimrod provides a theme for everyone -- men, women, adults, teenagers, people in every conceivable walk of life. / Within its five quarters, Vimrod had sold 640,000 cards worldwide. Two months later (May 2006), the numbers are close to 1 million. / The authors have a vast database of card ideas available (over 2,000 designs already exist and more are being drawn every day), which can be accessed via the website. / For those who subscribe via the website, a 'daily dose' of hilarity is sent out to test new card and brand ideas, ensuring that those that make it into the books are of the highest standard. / Iconic graphics and hugely flexible content provide instant brand recognition that has already worked so well on greeting cards, calendars, plushes, mugs, beer glasses, keychains, balloons and even confectionary. / Small format makes this an obvious stocking filler at Christmas and the perfect gift all year around. / Competition: Purple Ronnie; Edward Monkton
