Artist John Burningham offers his own view: idiosyncratic, intimate, playfully subversive and funny. He takes the reader through the traditional year - isolating the quirks and exploring the obsessions of English life: the love of pomp and ceremony; preoccupation with the weather; covert vulgarity and exploited eccentricity. These images are combined with snippets of text from sources as diverse as the MCC rules for "bad light stops play", the Queen's Christmas speech and the Cruft's dog show roll of honour. He distils the essential strengths, weaknesses, frustrations and delights that epitomize the English. John Burningham is twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and wrote "Around the World in Eighty Days".
