How to Avoid Huge Ships: And Other Implausibly Titled Books - Hardcover
2008 marks the 30th anniversary of the Diagram Prize, the momentous annual contest to determine the oddest book title of the year. Founded in 1978 by book packagers the Diagram Group to lighten spirits on a dull afternoon at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the prize is a joyous celebration of the barmy side of publishing. Now, for the first time, 50 of the funniest Diagram winners and runners-up are reproduced in full glorious colour in How To Avoid Huge Ships , an irresistible anthology of the oddest of the odd. Here are wildly implausible titles such as Bombproof Your Horse , People Who Don t Know They re Dead and The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories , not forgetting the classic Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers , voted by the public the oddest title of the past 30 years in the hotly contested Diagram of Diagrams. Mind-boggling, charming and utterly unique, How To Avoid Huge Ships is the perfect gift for book-lovers and anyone with a quirky sense of humour.
