--The Secret Lives of Grocery Shoppers --
Okay, this was just one of those absolutely quirky fun books I had to share.
Hillary Carlip started collecting shopping lists she found as a teenager. This book is the result of that collection. She has taken each list and based on the items listed, the notepaper used and the handwriting, has concocted a story for the twenty six lists in the book. If that wasn't enough, she then becomes each character and is photographed in a shopping environment that matches the list. The transformations are quite spectacular. Take a look at the cover again - those are all Carlip!
Fans of Tracey Ullman or The Office would appreciate the humour in this book!
