I try to be picky about coffee table books, since I have more of them now than I could ever possibly display on my coffee table. But this one made it through.
I’ve been wanting a digestible history of Britain for a while (mainly since stumbling my way through the Wars of the Roses via Shakespeare). Nothing signals digestible more than the word “Illustrated,” right? By the time I get to 1066 and All That I’ll be a veritable expert in the field.
Unexpectedly one of my favourite finds of the year so far.
