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 a humorist and the editor-in-chief of New Escapologist.
