I published a book. A book about The History Swearing. I illustrated and curated the whole content myself. It's a one woman show. It was distributed all over the globe by Laurence King Publishers. I've sold a couple thousand copies. Which is fucking awesome because it means people liked it and that makes me proud. You can get a copy here, here or here.
Description: This book is a bold and expressively designed treasure trove of information about the history of swearing. Swearing is and always has been regarded as undereducated, obscene, rude and profane in society. Yet despite your mum’s best efforts, cussing is mainstream. It’s even more than that, it’s an integrated part of our culture.
The number of times we swear is huge. Most often it occurs naturally and you would have to force yourself not to swear. We don’t think twice about shouting the word ‘FUCK’ if we hurt ourselves or miss the bus in the morning. It just happens automatically and that’s where it gets interesting.
Is swearing an instinct? When and why did it become such a bad thing? WHAT IS THE FUCKING HISTORY OF SWEARING??? Where does the hidden power of these words come from? Why does it make you feel so great sometimes? Could we use the power of swearing wisely as a tool in our daily life and make life easier?
All the answers to these questions and more you will find in this swearing atlas… Lean back, relax and start swearing.
