The Ladybird Book of The Hipster
by Jason Hazeley & Joel Morris (Penguin, 2015)
Hazeley and Morris appropriate the classic Ladybird children’s book format to make scathing jibes at today’s affectedly cliquey hipster culture. Ironically, their ridicule through mimicry results in a work no less unfathomable, suitable for hipster libraries. Perhaps that’s part of the joke.
