click to enlarge

Hamlyn, London, 1979
(price: £1.50)


The blurb on the back:

Barbara Windsor’s Book of Boobs is a riotous collection of boobs of every kind – an amazing mixture of misprints, mistakes and misunderstandings – a collection of classic clangers, hilarious howlers and headlines gone haywire. What’s more every single one of them is true!
Barbara Windsor’s Book of Boobs is great fun for all the family. Just pick up a copy – and carry on laughing!


Well, it’s a rip-off, of course, owing more than a little to Private Eye’s Book of Boobs, but the bonus of having Ms Windsor’s chest on the cover. One suspects that she had little to do with this series of misprints, malapropisms and poorly phrased headlines.

Harmless enough.
