9780007247578: 'SHOES, CHOCS, BAGS AND FROCKS'

A compendium of beautiful thoughts for women of taste and splendor
More About Shoes, Chocs, Bags, and Frocks
Edward Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a witty and quirky writing style with simple yet elegant illustrations to celebrate the four bastions of femininity, namely: shoes, chocolate, purses, and clothes.

Be it a handbag of glory, the shoes of salvation, the beautiful frock, or the kingdom of chocolate, Monkton fluidly expounds the virtues of many a lady's desires:

Buy me, Lady," said the frock,
"and I will make you into a
BEAUTIFUL and WHOLE and
COMPLETE Human Being."
"Do not be SILLY," said the Man,
"for a frock alone cannot do that."
"TRUE," said the Lady. "I will
have the Shoes and the Bag as well."
