K8’s choice is going out on a limb this week with book titles (on the vintage side). I pass out these three slim titles now bound into a neat little trilogy entitled:  The 2 1/2 Pillars of Wisdom to avid readers with a sense of humour.  Those who like something quirky, interesting and cool (read: smart). I beg and plead you to visit the hilarious world of Professor Dr Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld of The Institute of Romance Philology. Alexander McCall Smith steps out of his Lady Detective mode with this series.  It’s so peculiar in a Terry Gilliam way.

The lovely, witty illustrations of  series is drawn by master of the trade Iain McIntosh.
