There is a selection from David Bramwell's work "Odditorium" work here in each issue of Ernest Magazine (which is edited by Odditorium co-author Jo Keeling), and it's only part of what makes it the most exciting thing in print today. Bramwell's "Odditorium" eccentrics whose short histories are explored herein are the spiritual forefathers for the themes of Ernest: curious histories, artisanal workmanship, slow adventure, timeless style, and wild food. Peering into the book and the magazine is like having a collection of strange and wondrous companions.
I subscribe to over 50 periodicals annually, and Bramwell's and Keeling's imagination helps to make Ernest the one I reach for first and eagerly anticipate. Do yourself a favor and first order this book, but also order every one of the the 5 of 6 available issues of "Ernest" in backorder, as well as a subscription going forward. It will full your (comparably drab) life with whimsy, adventure, and inspiration!
This book is ace I think im going to have to get it for a few people, You'll love it and keep coming back for more!
