Awesome neon Basil Brush book from 1971, following Britain’s best loved, bushy-tailed red fox on his mission to find lost treasure.
Brainchild of puppet maker Peter Firmin, Basil was something of an upper class raconteur who stole the hearts of a nation during the ‘60s and ‘70s. And this vintage learn to read hardback book is a lovely memento from both the fox and Firmin’s glory days.
