Book Description Unicorn, 2006. 2-82. Condition: New. With scarecrow-making now a popular folk art, the ragged guardians of the fields seem to be making a comeback; variously strange, menacing and endearing, their place in art and literature is testament to their beguiling nature and their hold on the imagination. Gregory Holyoake presents a beautifully illustrated account of the history and origins of the scarecrow, both out in the fields and in all forms of popular and literary culture, from Shakespeare and Dickens to Beatrix Potter and Hitchcock.
