We Offer You Escape!

A clipping from the first promotional email sent out by the publisher.


That tagline, by the way (“Ladies and gentlemen, we offer you escape!”) comes from a 1950s adventure radio series called Escape. I’ll tell you a little more about that some time.

Please consider backing the book if you’ve not already (and many thanks to everyone who has helped us get to 20% after just two days).

Should we make it, it’ll be a beautifully-designed book and a definitive and witty guide to Escapology and the good life. Help fund the project today.


Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at www.wringham.co.uk/about.
