Know a pessimistic realist in your life? He probably needs to keep track of all his appointments — or rather, disappointments — in his life, then. Filled with overwrought copy like ‘Genius is 99% perspiration and you’ve mastered that bit’, ‘Crappe diem’ and ‘You can lead a horse to water but you’re nearly 45 and still not married’, the Disappointments Diary is a collaboration between design company Hat-trick Design and writer Nick Asbury, published by Asbury & Asbury. It’s hilarious. Also, it’s now going at a bargain price of £7.
