About this product
- DescriptionThis book is fully illustrated with the author's own photographs. Gregory Holyoake has researched and written probably the first book to include all aspects of the scarecrow from its role in primitive societies worldwide to twentieth-century literature, art, film and advertising. Gregory has dipped into the archives for further scarecrow images, and the result is an astonishingly well-documented and absorbing account of the myth, folklore and folk art which this subject represents.
