Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Ephemera of Shame #2

FOR TWO...??

Holiday Fun, Juvenile Productions: London: no date, c. 1940s. 4to. Illustrated card covers, unpaginated (approx. 64pp.), b&w illus. in text + colour frontis.

Oh, bygone days... how nostalgic your facilitating the debasement of two peoples in one single image?? I suppose it is thus appropriate that the only colour image in the book lays it all out in black and red...

For Further Research:
Edith Harries, the artist of the frontispiece above, appears to have been quite prolific in this genre of children's book illustration, but I have been unable to locate any solid, specific source of information about her, or the publisher "Juvenile Productions Ltd."
