Garfield, Simon
$20.00

Simon Garfield is a master of finding delight and fascination in unlikely places and here we discover flea circuses, 1,000 tiny Hitlers, miniature crime scenes, model villages and railways, minuscule food and a dozen more intricately examined pursuits. Each object considered plots the course of a new miniature byway, and in unexpected ways lets us see our world in a whole new light.

We bring things down to size to understand and appreciate them. This book does the same... Note - Paper sleeve with ritle and author missing
