The Book of Idle Pleasures, Hardback

The Book of Idle Pleasures Hardback



The Book of Idle Pleasures is a restorative gift book for the stressed out, tired and hassled.

An antidote to our non-stop culture, it is a welcome compendium of timeless delights.

The book lists and reflects on 75 simple pastimes and proves that the best things in life really are free: lighting fires, skimming stones, catching falling leaves, whittling, staring out of the window, dreaming, doodling or taking a nap.

The Book of Idle Pleasures is a celebration of pleasure for its own sake in a world of consumer overload.
