The Granny Alphabet Tim Walker brings his unique brand of very British fantasia to a subject close to all our hearts: grandmothers. The first volume of this very special twinset offers a collection of characterful photographs of grannies and the things nearest to each of them, arranged alphabetically and accompanied by short, gently humorous verses by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. The second volume has Lawrence Mynott’s drawings of lively old ladies. You’ll find Lucinda, whose hat addiction shows no sign of waning, and Kitty, whose knitting skills are second to none.

These images date from the sixties and seventies. Time hasn’t change much don’t you think? Even the way we dress is only just slightly altered in detail, just like the kind of bikes we ride. Same goes for drugs, although heroin is very 2003…… but never mind that, it’s just a detail.
