    What a Life! by E. V. Lucas (bluepiano)
    bluepiano: Clip-art c. 1910 and surely the inspiration for similar books since then, including Ardagh's.

Essentially a book of captions, tSSoSH takes illustrations from original Sherlock Holmes books and takes them out of context with brilliant results. A small yet funny book which I would recommend for a good little laugh. ( )

This book is just awesome. Take out of context pictures from the original prints of Sherlock Holmes from the Strand Magazine (circa 1891-1927) Add some snarky comments from Watson, and you get a masterpiece of comedy writing. Or at least something that genuinely makes you laugh. A great book for Sherlock Holmes Fans. ( )

Book description
With the full consent of the estate of the late, and undeniably great, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (which has very wisely registered the name 'Sherlock Holmes' as a trademark), Philip Ardagh - himself a life-long Sherlock Holmes fan - has taken illustrations from issues of "The Strand Magazine" and welded them together to create "The Silly Side of Sherlock Holmes: A Brand New Adventure Using a Bunch of Old Pictures". The title says it all, really. Be prepared for some very silly sleuthing indeed.   [Amazon Product Description, retrieved 12/7/2010]
