Daily Bookshot: Badger Set

Badger Set, originally uploaded by Robert Burdock.

On its own I don’t think Philip Hensher’s latest novel, King of the Badgers (Fourth Estate) stands out as being particularly attractive in an aesthetic sense (feel free to disagree :)). Cluster a few copy together though, and an entirely different opinion begins to emerge.

About Rob

Rob, a self-confessed bibliophile, is without any hope of rehabilitation. He gets unnaturally excited over anything book-shaped, and if book sniffing were a crime then he would have been locked up years ago (which wouldn't bother him in the slightest provided his cell was lined with books).


  1. Your ‘bager set’ made me smile – great post title!

    I think the same can be said of most books – they always look better when grouped with other similar ones.

      Thank you Jackie. That’s my once yearly flash of inspiration :). Yeah I know most books look better when grouped together, but work with me here, K? 🙂
