Blokes, Jokes and Sheds by Chris Slane
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The shed is a place where men can find sanctuary from the demands of everyday life, and is one of the last remaining untouched bastions of maleness. With Blokes, Jokes & Sheds, Chris Slane takes an affectionate and humorous look at this enduring icon of blokedom, inspired by his popular series of cartoons for The Shed Magazine.

Featuring sheds and their owner-occupiers, Blokes, Jokes & Sheds goes some way to uncovering the mysteries of what sheds mean to men. There are sheds for tinkering, sheds for escape, sheds as a second home, sheds for socialising, and inventive sheds. There is a shed for every man and every shed is a castle. The book is loosely based on the topics of Shed Sweet Home, Favourite Projects, Shed Widows, DIY Disasters and Tool Talk. Interspersed among the cartoons are Shed Factoids, What Type of Sheddie Are You? and a DIY-agony column.

A great gift for dads and blokes.
