Synopsis

The PERFECT GIFT for the terminally cool.
_________________________________________________

This is a hipster.

He is childless, unaccountably wealthy, and always well turned out.

He likes art, porridge,s carves, and anything reclaimed from French factories . . .
_________________________________________________

Hipsters like to collect old things that are unfashionable, because that makes them fashionable.

Vintage washing-up bowls are highly prized, because they look neither retro nor valuable, and therefore both.
_________________________________________________

This delightful book is part of a Ladybird series specially planned to help grown-ups with the world about them.

The large clear script, the careful choice of words, the frequent repetition and the thoughtful matching of text with pictures all enable grown-ups to think they have taught themselves to cope. Featuring original Ladybird artwork alongside brilliantly funny, brand new text.

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
