The Weird Book Room.

At the end of this post I’m gonna link you to one of the best things ever and I guarantee you’ll want to buy at least one thing from it.

I think I’ve bought over 30 books since Christmas.
I’ve got this great idea to turn my spare room into a walk in library one day but it’s just an idea.

A pal of mine told me about some strange book titles to look out for and mentioned some of these…

Those titles are part of a ‘Weird Book Room’ list from Abebooks.
They are by no means the weirdest books to be found.

I’ve already bought 6 books from the list.

TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF

“Borrow & Never Give Back”.

Remember that song “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” from “The Wizard Of Oz”?

“Follow the yellow brick road.
Follow the yellow brick road.
Follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow the yellow brick road”
.

Well,
Every time I walk into a library,
That song plays in my head on a loop.
Except the lyrics are different.

“Borrow and never give back.
Borrow and never give back.
Borrow, borrow, borrow, borrow,
Borrow and never give back”
.

And folks,
That’s why to this day,
I can’t get a library card in the whole district of Lanarkshire.

Y’see,
Sometime around the early 1990’s I borrowed and never gave back a book called:
“A Nasty Piece of Work: The Art & Graft of Spitting Image.

I fucking loved that book.
It detailed the sketches, technique, concepts and work that went into the satirical 1980’s puppet T.V. show “Spitting Image” by illustrator Roger Law:

Anyways,
One day the book fell apart in my hands and the last I saw of it,
The pages got blown all the way up Stewart Street in Bellshill.

That book is long gone out of print now and I’ve been looking all over the internet for some of the pictures from the book.
I found nothing.

But!
I did find a mint copy of the book on http://www.abebooks.co.uk/ and bought it straight away.

Here are some photos of the puppets from the book:
