Alex is written by Charles Peattie and Russell Taylor which first appeared in book form in 1987. After Volume V, the UK books continued un-numbered, and became a larger format. In recent years the series has become a "Best of..." annual, commencing with two compilations (1987-1998 and 1998-2001) then annually thereafter. Below is a Gallery of Alex Books in year order.

PLEASE NOTE : This gallery shows the actual correct covers for each issue shown, as they are in my collection. Amazon and eBay often show completely different covers using 'stock images' which were gleaned from publishers pre-publication info. I do not know why booksellers on such sites use these 'stock images' as they are very misleading, and if they have the actual book for sale they should represent it correctly. 'Stock images' are the bane of collectors everywhere.

Australia/New Zealand

Alex cartoons by Charles Peattie and Russell Taylor were published in Australia in The Australian Financial Review.

Subsequent "Best of" books were issued by the same publisher. I know of at least six and do not know if they continued. The Books were large format (B4 size), 72-page paperbacks.
