Sue Baker's view...

There will be few people who won’t recognise Cath Tate’s greeting cards and her use of early photographic images with dead pan commentaries. Now with Mother’s Day approaching it’s Mothers coming in for the Cath Tate treatment. Mothers of all shapes and sizes, old and young, with babies and without all have something to say about Motherhood – all in the best possible taste.

Older: But Not Wiser, Cath Tate

Who is Sue Baker

Synopsis

Mothers We're Nowhere Without Them 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. In this highly amusing new addition to the series, Cath gives us the lowdown on life as a mother. It embraces all aspects of motherhood, from that first terrifying journey home from the hospital with your screeching bundle of joy, through teenage tantrums and the empty nest, to those disconcerting years when you begin to turn into your own mother.
