This may well be an address book but it is certainly unlike any other. Profusely illustrated throughout in full colour, it contains a delicious selection of Simon Drew's highly idiosyncratic drawings and accompanying written captions. Throughout this book there are countless distractions: this means that as you look up an address you will find yourself amazed at the drawings and quirky words and will soon discover that you have forgotten what you were doing in the first place. What could be more surprising than finding a mole wandering across Auntie Flo's address? Or maybe an earthworm writhing past a telephone number? Gifted with a quirky sense of fun and a lively imagination, Simon Drew interprets conventional words and phrases, situations and circumstances in pictures and prose. It is an address book designed to delight all those who enjoy verbal and pictorial puns.
Simon Drew lives in Dartmouth, England, with his wife, Caroline, and his dog, Rabbit. He works mainly in pen and ink, making fiendishly inventive drawings of everyday objects, birds and animals embellished with devious rhymes and word play. His work is widely acclaimed and exhibited, and is already the subject of numerous books. Drew's designs are also incorporated into a wide variety of stationery and accessories ranging from cards, mugs, t-shirts and aprons. - See more at: http://www.accdistribution.com/us/store/pv/9781851497768/the-wisdom-of-wine/simon-drew?layout=popup#sthash.Bfqp9DQW.dpuf
