About this title

Synopsis:

Simon Drew has compiled a series of poems, drawings and puns in this book that combine a sense of the ridiculous with a definite seriousness regarding our respect, or lack of it, for the countryside. He has always found that he has an irresistible urge to make fun of most things: this applies particularly to language which he sometimes twists in the same way that a crossword compiler does. However, as a keen observer of our environment, whether it is man-made or otherwise, it would have been hard for him to ignore the fact that humans have had a somewhat odd attitude to the animals and plants that we can (or could) find around us. To make his drawings Simon Drew has avoided the pitfalls of resorting to cartoons and makes the animals look like they really are, where possible! The result of this juxtaposition of quirky humour and semi-serious drawings is sometimes hilarious, sometimes provocative and sometimes just warped. This is his third book: the two previous ones are A Book of Bestial Nonsen

About the Author:

Simon Drew lives in Dartmouth, England, with his wife, Caroline, and his dog, Rabbit. He works mainly in pen and ink, making fiendishly inventive drawings of everyday objects, birds and animals embellished with devious rhymes and word play. His work is widely acclaimed and exhibited, and is already the subject of numerous books. Drew's designs are also incorporated into a wide variety of stationery and accessories ranging from cards, mugs, t-shirts and aprons. - See more at: http://www.accdistribution.com/us/store/pv/9781851497768/the-wisdom-of-wine/simon-drew?layout=popup#sthash.Bfqp9DQW.dpuf
