Woodmansterne Studio, Ian Blake
Fresh from the award-winning Woodmansterne studio, Hysterical Heritage juxtaposes imagery inspired by the Bayeaux Tapestry with modern day expressions and dilemmas, resulting in a hilarious and unique, new humour range.
In this, their first book, Hysterical Heritage regales some of the common pitfalls, quandaries and incidents of the midlife crisis all viewed through the lens of medieval history. Full of colourful imagery and relatable humour, this is the perfect gift for the mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles in your life.
