Description
The year 2008 marked the 30th anniversary of the Diagram Prize, Britain's annual contest to determine the oddest book title of the year—a hilarious celebration of the barmy side of publishing. Here you will find collected such baffling titles as Bombproof Your Horse, How to Avoid Huge Ships, and People Who Don't Know They're Dead. Other winners of this glittering prize include Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers, The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories, and that brilliant study of graphic communication, Design for Impact: Fifty Years of Airline Safety Cards. Each of the honored is seen in a color reproduction of the cover, with additional examples from inside the book, if merited.
