Friday Library Snapshot …

November 8, 2013

Some of the books I come across here at Special Collections are outdated, non-pc, sexist, racist and at times in bad taste.  However they do for some reason, which is not always apparent at first glance,  have a place here and deserved of ‘special’ status’

This book is part of the Mark Longman Library which alone makes it special. But for this book for its faults and there are a few (see above list) it is very special as the illustrations are by Val Biro (of Gumdrop fame)  and very funny and cheer anyone on  Monday morning or on a Friday.

Images from How to be an author by Denys Val Baker illustrated by Val Biro 1952.
