In the spirit of Awkward Family Photos and Grumpy Cat comes a new book to keep you warm at night: Retro Jumpers. Featuring jumpers from your favourite bygone eras, this hilarious gift book features regular people wearing less-than-regular jumpers, from the sequined and spangled to the knitted themed jumper, as well as jumper-centric retro advertisements for an '80s sweatshirt workout, a video dating service, cats wearing jumpers, and so much more. Each double-page spread features jumpers accessorised with ridiculous props on fresh, bright backgrounds and uproarious captions that bring each one to life, transporting you to ski chalets, beaches, and cocktail parties. It's the perfect gift title this Christmas, especially if you like keeping warm in style!
