People have sat in front of the camera from Victorian times onwards and subjected themselves to some very strange portrait photographs. A selection of these portraits, well known from Cath Tate’s greeting cards, form the basis of this quirky gift book, they’ve been hand-coloured and are used to augment the statements and quotations revolving around friendship. As the text line often runs counter to the image you find yourself smiling your way through the book, as, for example, the photograph of 2 very stout and forbidding 1920’s ladies with the caption “get in touch, or we’ll come and visit”.

Synopsis

Friends Are cheaper than therapy 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 a beloved friend - brings together the best of Cath's work on friendship. Whimsical, scurrilous and - very occasionally - tender, it is packed with insights into today's modern friendships, from belligerent bookclubs to over-enthusiastic drama queens to ridiculous hen parties. After all, as Cath says, 'A friend is someone who likes you even though they know you.'
