Tottering Hall by Annie Tempest
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Amidst the decaying splendour of Tottering Hall in the county of Pimmshire, Lord and Lady Tottering live the archetypal country life. Daffy Tottering in 'wellies and pearls', drinks gin, smokes Silk Cuts, diets permanently and frets about her descending bosom, whilst her husband Dicky lives for hunting, shooting and fishing and fears women with lap tops and mobile phones infiltrating his club. Together with their slightly politically incorrect political entourage Daffy and Dicky represent a sort of quintessentially English country lifestyle. Thus it is no wonder that these endearing characters have become stars of Country Life magazine and their creator, award-winning cartoonist Annie Tempest is feted as one of Britain's most accomplished illustrators. Tottering-by-Gently is now something of an industry. Licensing includes limited edition prints, tea service, clocks, paperweights, ceramics, place mats, ties and much more. During 2001, in association with Holland and Holland, Sacs of New York, Range Rover, a Far Eastern Hotel Group and many other sponsors 'Tottering' will be rolled out world-wide with a further extensive range of merchandise. This is the first trade book on Tottering which will be a key element in this merchandising and will be the start of a on-going publishing relationship with Orion. Tottering Hall is Annie Tempest's personal selection from seven years of strips and single cartoons.
