Men and Sheds by Gordon Thorburn

It has been said that a shed is to a man what a handbag is to a woman -- both contain all the essentials for surviving in the modern world, and in the same way that no decent man would ever consider looking in a womans handbag uninvited, so no reasonable woman would dream of setting foot in a mans shed without an invitation. This humorous new book is a study of over 40 men and their sheds around the UK, a quirky look at the personalities and passions hidden within the shed, whether used for eccentric inventions, as a chapel, home to a milk bottle collection, a movie theater, housing for exotic reptiles, or a place to make music. In the UK, where they are something of an obsession, the garden shed was voted into the Millennium Dome display on national identity as one of the top 100 symbols of Britishness. The fascinating story of each bloke and his shed is accompanied by photographs of the inner sanctum and of the customized exteriors. This book will appeal to anyone with a sense of humor, but is specifically suitable as a giftbook for blokes. Especially blokes with sheds.
