summit, I did: Merkin

That’s Not My Merkin

I made this as a parody for all recent parents.

The print run was short and the reception was great… but when I got down to the final 15 copies I received a threat of legal action from Usborne Books.

It seemed unlikely at the time that they could win a law suit, but the time and cost I was going to face made it sensible to stop selling the last few copies. So here are the pages for free!






UK copyright law was revised in 2016 and I am pretty sure this would now be protected as a clear case of parody (it even identifies itself as such on the cover!), so maybe… just maybe… I’ll do a reprint one of these days.
