For people-watchers everywhere, this is the definitive guide to one of the strangest peoples in existence: the British.
Discover the weird, loveable and inexplicable variety of beings populating these isles, each with their own delightful quirks and oddities. Learn to spot the difference between landed gentry and oligarchs, amateur artist and hipster. Recognise the middle-aged couple on their way to Glastonbury and the Brit on holiday.
‘These drawings reveal the British character as we have always suspected it to be, even if we don’t quite dare to admit it. In a long tradition going back to Osbert Lancaster and Max Beerbohm, Chelsea Renton captures in a few lines the essence of the people she draws. Sharp but affectionate, always revealing, and often very funny.’
