9780753522684: A Brief History of Tim: The World Minus One Letter

Hilarous and incongrous in equal measure, this glorious gift book demonstrates how different the world looks when you remove one letter
 Rather than explaining our origins, A Brief History of Tim addresses our history and culture at the level we most deeply desire—the trivial. By simply removing one letter, the world is tweaked with immensely enjoyable results: For those who think contemporary art is a load of rubbish, there's the Tat Modern. Find out about the Ancient Geeks, nerdy types who spent far too much time doing maths. A Brief History of Tim is laugh-out-loud funny and will have you looking at the world through fresh eyes.
