The Ladybird book of the Hipster is your guide to 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.
