Link o' the day

Over at Abebooks.co.uk (who, incidentally offer a marvelous service for finding second hand books, and no - I am not being paid to write this) a collection of weird books have been listed.

To whet everyone's appetite, note the following:

  • 'How You Can Bowl Better Using Self-Hypnosis'
  • 'Jewish Chess Masters On Stamps' 
  • '50 Sad Chairs'
  • 'Oedipus In Disneyland'
  • 'Help! A Bear Is Eating Me'
  • 'Nuclear War: What's In It For You'

You can thank me later.

Slightly off topic: when I was in my early teens the book I borrowed most frequently from the public library was "Watch maker's lathes" (perhaps I paraphrase I little). I remember being amazed, years later when I actually saw one, how small they were.

I am amusing myself with the thought of architects' discombobulation and their aesthetic/distaste dichotomy of '50 Sad Chairs'.
