The Granny Alphabet



ISBN: 9780500544266 Category:


Tim Walker has won a cult following for his flamboyant, lavishly staged and surrealist fashion photography. Now he brings his unique brand of very British fantasia to a subject close to his and all our hearts: grannies. Pour yourself a cup of tea and step into an enchanted realm, where twinkling Miss Marple-types elope to Egypt in head-to-toe tartan or jet off to Mars on a flying saucer… You’ll find Lucinda, whose hat addiction shows no sign of waning (she even goes to bed in one), and Hattie, who’ll give you a humbug if you’re helpful.

Volume 1 offers a collection of granny portraits by Tim Walker, arranged alphabetically and accompanied by short, gently humorous verse by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. In Volume 2, fashion illustrator Lawrence Mynott contributes his own A-Z of lively old ladies…

Spirited, stylish, sweet – here are granny archetypes of every stripe.
