Amazing, imaginative book.,
This review is from: Bruce McCall's Zany Afternoons (Paperback)
This is an amzing book of brilliant cartoon pictures with accompanying storyline by Bruce McCaul. I remember the first time I read it and the real sense of wonder I felt on turning each page. Were the articles true? Are the 'small ads' genuine, like the Liquid Carpet and packs of Perpetual Lunch Meat? Were those amazing cars he illustates really once manufactured in the USA?
The breath of his imagination is a delight and this is just one of a dozen equally great books by Bruce McCaul. Was there an Autogyro Joust, a Zeppelin Shoot, an R.M.S. 'Tyrannic' which dwarfed the 'Titanic' by facilitating pony races through steerage? Maybe........
While this particular book is out of print it is considered one of his best and will soon be re-printed. In the meantime enter his name in Amazon.co.uk and see what comes up second-hand.
