Author(s): Simon DREW
Britain has been blessed with many fine poets; Simon Drew isn't one of them.
It is tempting to call this a book of doggerel, but maybe that's aiming a little high. This book makes a Co-Op receipt seem intellectual.
However, there are many collectors of Drew's work (some of them locked up) who will welcome a collection of all the best verses. This book will be left lying around the best homes with the aim of impressing odd people and passing hyenas.
Continues a long tradition of the author's work which reveals his highly idiosyncratic interpretation of the world he inhabits. A further example of Simon Drew's peculiarly individual use of words and pictures. A very original present for lovers of the quirky and odd.
Simon Drew is an unusual combination of artist and wordsmith. He combines these two talents with an inventive and quirky sense of humour in his range of books and invites us to look at the world through the magic of Drewsian spectacles. A new perspective unfolds on the world: the familiar becomes unfamiliar, the known becomes unknown, the serious becomes humorous, reality becomes nonsense. It is a topsy-turvy world of visual and verbal puns that never fail to delight. Simon Drew shakes us out of complacency in the most enjoyable of ways. For those who are not already addicted there is only one thing to suggest – read them all!
