Garfield books in the UK were mostly produced by Ravette Books with a few specials by Knight Books and Ballantine Books. The Ravette standard size series started in 1982 at two per year (with the exceptions of 1984 and 1992 where four were published). The series continues to this day. From time to time Ravette also produced various other landscape books, notably longer landscapes and the "Garfield's Guide to" series.

In 2001, the Ravette standard series changed cover format to a new design but this only lasted for four books. The 2003 issues changed format again, very similar to the original format. Nos 1 - 14 although issued by Ravette, did not actually say so on the covers. Consequently, after the issue of No 15, Ravette reprinted the first 14 books with different covers (and their logo !), as shown in the Reprint Gallery further below.

UPDATE
I have been in touch with Ravette Publishing and they confirm that since their licence to publish Garfield books expired in June 2018, No 69 published in October 2016 was the last in the series.
