A Brief History of Tim : The World Minus One Letter, Hardback Book

A Brief History of Tim : The World Minus One Letter Hardback

3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Rather than explaining our origins, A Brief History of Tim addresses our history and culture at the levelwe most deeply desire - the trivial.

By simply removing one letter, the world is tweaked with immensely enjoyable results:For those who think contemporary art is a load of rubbish, there's the Tat Modern.

Find out about the Ancient Geeks, nerdy types who spent far too much time doing maths. A Brief History of Tim is laugh-out-loud funny and will have you looking at the world through fresh eyes.

Review by

Although this is very funny for a few pages at a time, it soon palls. It is a useful catalyst for creative play, however, and bears revisiting. On the whole, it probably works best as a joke-of-the-day style twitter feed.
