This is a great coffee table book, to pick up read a few pages and then put down, while your watching T.V.

It is full of Vic's humour and illustrations, essentially if you like him you will like this.

I picked it up for my Dad's Birthday earlier in the year, (only just got round to reading it myself), and I would recommend that it does make a great gift for any Vic and Bob fan in your life.
This is deff a must have for any Vic Reeves fan. His art work is stunning and he obviously put so much time and effort into this book and it really shows. The paintings themselves are just genius, especially the painting of Vanilla Ice. It's what the encyclopedia would look like if Vic had written it. It's funny but most of all its just a really cool book to own.
Do you like Vic? You'll like his art book. His sketches are great. Especially all of the noses he puts on people. I plan on making my children read this when they're small so they grow up confused about the world. It'll be simultaneous torture and brilliance. Long-term experiment. My unborn fetuses will thank me one day.

I got this thinking it was a compendium of faux-naive illustration mixed with worldly knowledge and I'm a bit disappointed. It's a bit of a novelty book. Nice bloke though.

An easy silly quick read for the last day of college before the Christmas holidays begin - mass was great today!

“Beatniks are a youth cult that fight against society by wearing sunglasses even in inclement weather. This signifies their dislike of 'the sun', their sworn enemy. In the Beatniks' Manifesto they declare they will, one day, destroy the sun by using enormous pelicans that will trap it in their under-chin beak pouches and fly off to some distant place like the Hebrides and bury it beneath a pile of farmyard manure, and then the beatniks shall inherit the earth.” 0 likes
