Ian McMillan and Tony Husband will visit White Rose BookCafe on Tues Nov 5th, 10.30am to 12.15, to sign their two new books this autumn: 101 Uses for a Flat Cap (Dalesman), Ian and cartoonist Tony Husband re-define the national headgear of Yorkshire in terms of cultural, social & political strategies. Everything from a butterfly net or Bond villain’s deadly weapon, a satellite dish or cat scarer, to an impromptu bobsleigh or bouncy castle. Also revealed, how the Flat Cap was portrayed in the Bayeaux Capestry and the rather risqué Erotic Dance of the Flat Cap (‘drives men barmy’, says Ian).
And The Tale of Walter the Pencil Man (Smokestack Books) is a collaboration between Ian and several times Cartoonist of the Year, Tony Husband. It tells the story, in six-line rhyming stanzas, of a young lad from a Yorkshire pit village who finds himself caught up in the terrible slaughter of the First World War and records the things he sees around him with a pencil and some paper.
You are invited to come and meet Ian and Tony, for fun and laughter with cartoons.
To reserve signed copies please telephone the bookshop.
