GIN AND JUICE: The Victorian Guide to Parenting


GIN AND JUICE: The Victorian Guide to Parenting

ALAN TYERS AND BEACH    Book Number: 84429    Product format: Hardback

Beach the cartoonist has created imaginatively absurd Victorian-style woodcuts which look completely authentic to decorate the text of his comedy writer friend in this riotous collection of parenting advice "From the foremost Victorian experts on child care." The Vaccinated Child has noble bearing and is rich in moral fibre. The un-vaccinated child suffers from an acute case of Monkey Shoulder, lives in a barrel and is probably on fire. Yes, all this is depicted in a woodcut, rich in detail with very old fashioned clear typeface text wrapped around hundreds of diagrams and woodcut illustrations. You might just believe that some of this advice was swallowed in Victorian times like mummy spanking daddy in Fig.1 - the other kind of discipline for daddy. Uber nannies, the importance of routine, becoming acquainted with your baby, all of the entries are by entirely fictitious eccentrics like Lady Tracy Hoggswallop the Horse Whisperer: "Does my bump look big in this corset?" The agonies and indignities of childbirth, sleeplessness and the benefits of Superfoods including Gin, Tobacco and Trifle. And learn how to Have It All from Queen Victoria (mother of nine and Empress of India). Facsimile style very witty nonsense. 160pp, illus.
