Even More Getaway Funny Signs

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Showcasing a bevy of ridiculous, poignant, and often confounding street signs, this entertaining tribute to the images submitted by the globetrotting fans of travel stalwart Getaway over the years is the third eyebrow-raising journey into international public oddity. With a lighthearted focus on the unintentional misuse and abuse of words, this world tour of grammatical incorrectness is a spirited yet good-natured mocking of naivety or ignorance of the English language. Replete with amusing and bewildering photographs from savvy world travelers, and equally targeting the full international spectrum of cultural literary misadventures, this comical collection illustrates how so many exert considerable effort to tell others wacky things on boards and signs-while often getting the message hilariously wrong in the process.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
