Lubin Tales is a 64-page hardback, pocket-sized collection of beautifully illustrated short stories and musings by artist and performer Gerry King.
Surreal, playful and romantic, the stories are woven together from various locations and time frames; an abandoned 1947 V-12 Lincoln automobile waits for a history in a French wood, British seaside resorts are portrayed with renewed love and nostalgia. A host of characters tease and entertain: the fabulous Pauls, one a continental hairdresser, the other a 1950s welterweight boxer, plus the promenade prancing Poodle Faker and the deliciously deviant Stealerant.
Each page is a visual delight, colour throughout with graphic illustration and photography. Settle down in the plush red upholstery of the La Reine Restocrat barber's chair and prepare to be indulged and entertained.
