Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Anne Taintor is a relatively good girl with a slightly checkered past. Much emulated, never replicated, she first began pairing vintage illustrations with witty sayings 25 years ago, cutting and gluing images at her kitchen table. She lives in a 1783 farmhouse in Maine.

More About the Author

This books is hysterical! I ordered copies for my sisters for the holidays and I don't usually waste time or money on novelty books that tend to go in the 'thrift store pile' after the initial charm is gone. Anne Taintor's wit and sarcasm has only gotten funnier and edgier with time.

Purchased this book along with "Porn for Women of a Certain Age" as gag gifts for my best friends 40th girls week birthday celebration. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed trading off the books and sharing the pages along with personal stories.

Items were shipped and in perfect condition.

I stumbled across this electronic book in our library's digital collection. This was hilarious! Some of these pictures look familiar so I'm sure I've seen them somewhere before. What a great and modern idea to gather all of together for a collection. So funny. I have to show my mom.
