Journalist and cartoonst Gerard Alsteens (Belgium) is 70 years young and his career goes on for 50 years. The new book about GAL's career:  "Een halve eeuw op het scherp van de snee" (Half a century on the cutting edge) is a book to read and watch as GAL can only be read by looking.
Journalists, politicians, writers and artists, friends and family have chosen a work that greatly interests them and give their comments.

The text in the book is in Dutch (2010, Uitgeverij Van Halewyck, ISBN 978-94-6131-018-7, 30 euro)
