"What game sums up the hopes of the nation more than ... Bingo?! You don't have to be a regular player to know the familiar calls: 'Two fat ladies!' 'Doctor's orders!' But what inspired the bingo caller's famous lexicon? From 'Kelly's Eye' (1) to Top of the Shop (90), Bingo demystifies the phrases behind the numbers, with delightful illustrations by acclaimed graphic designer Anita Mangan to depict every single number. If you're in need of comfort, nostalgia and a knowing chuckle, then Bingo offers it in spadefuls. Collectible, fun and fascinating in equal measure, Bingo tells the story behind the numbers in a humorous blast from the past."--Provided by publisher.
