"Alex Graham is the best-known humorist of our time. 'Fred', the Graham's pet basset hound, appears every day in the Daily Mail and has an enormous following, while Punch contains the popular domestic cartoons in this book. Born of Scottish parents in Glasgow, Graham went to the Glasgow Academy of Art and won glittering prizes for portrait and landscape painting. His first cartoon was published while he was still at school. He lives now in Sussex, is married with two children and Fred.
Reviewing Alex Graham's last book Normally I Never Touch It: People At Parties (published in 1968), Chaim Bermant said in the Observer: 'Graham's annual collection of cartoons helps to make the approach of Christmas bearable... he is the most affable of cartoonists, and among the very few who combine humour with charity.' Here is his latest graphic commentary on the foibles of every day family life.
A wonderful gift for a father especially who can relate to the trials and tribulations of having an adolescent daughter!

If you aren't sure about something or simply want to ask a question about an item before purchasing don't hesitate to get in touch. Whether it is to clarify sizing or request more info on a product we are always here to help.
*Sizing - garments are always measured laid flat and doubled, e.g. armpit to armpit is 17" = 34" chest
*Colour - we do our best to capture the true colour of a garment in the photos but if you are not sure then let us know and we'll be happy to send more photos
*Wear & Tear - our item descriptions are quite detailed to ensure you are given as much information as possible about each item's condition. If we state the condition as 'new' or 'never worn' then expect no wear and tear. If a garment is listed as 'excellent' then there are no faults and the item has normal wear for a vintage or used item. 'Very good' is an indication that the garment is wearable but there may be minor or insignificant flaws that are not noticeable or can be fixed and these are always stated in the description. We do not stock items that are of a poorer condition than the above.
*Materials - if there is a label or marking on the item we will state what fabric or materials were used to make the product. If the item does not have a label we will always state this and then indicate our own opinion of the fabric or material but this is not a guaranteed fact.
*Product Care - if there is a care label on the item we will state the directions indicated. If the item does not have a care label we will state our product care advice based on the fabric/material.
