A compendium of beautiful thoughts for women of taste and splendor "More About Shoes, Chocs, Bags, and Frocks" Edward Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a witty and quirky writing style with simple yet elegant illustrations to celebrate the four bastions of femininity, namely: shoes, chocolate, purses, and clothes. Be it a handbag of glory, the shoes of salvation, the beautiful frock, or the kingdom of chocolate, Monkton fluidly expounds the virtues of many a lady's desires: Buy me, Lady," said the frock, "and I will make you into a BEAUTIFUL and WHOLE and COMPLETE Human Being." "Do not be SILLY," said the Man, "for a frock alone cannot do that." "TRUE," said the Lady. "I will have the Shoes and the Bag as well."show more
