An entertaining history of the necktie
This was honestly such a great read! I love the way Fry writes and I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into with this one, but I trusted it would be good.

And good it was! This is an exposition of Fry’s tie collection, with a little bit of memoir and history to accompany the story of each tie.

Not only that, but there are really quite stunning photographs of each tie, which were immensely satisfying to look at. I find myself very envious of his tie collection and desperately want an awesome one of my own.

If you like ties or Stephen Fry, this book is a great cocktail of ridiculous delight to feast your eyes upon.

Grab a copy!
