Sue Baker's view...

From Cath Tate of greetings cards fame, a lovely book for Father’s Day, full of tongue in cheek humour. Here we have portraits of men, mostly from the 1910-1940 eras, often in absurd poses with deadpan faces, the “what on earth did they think they were doing” quality of the images enlivened with the ironic modern comments.

Synopsis

Manhood Is a Serious Business by Cath Tate

In the realm of amusing, deadpan greetings cards, Cath Tate is the original and best. In her thirty-year career she has created thousands of witty, original and often subversive cards, featuring grim-faced old ladies, ludicrously dressed 1920s gentlemen and bizarre-looking children, paired with text that perfectly captures her highly individual and devastatingly funny view on the world. This hilarious book - a perfect gift for the man in your life, or perhaps an unsuspecting bride-to-be - brings together the best of Cath's work on men. Packed with mirth-making images of men in all their ridiculous glory and insights into the mysterious way their minds work, this is a perfect reflection of modern-day manhood.
