30 Years of Odd Book Titles

Since I linked to an article about the winner of the annual Diagram Prize for oddest book title, the media has also reported the awarding of a Diagram of Diagrams prize for the oddest book title of the past 30 years. The winner is Greek Rural Postmen and their Cancellation Numbers:

In The Bookseller’s online poll to find the “Diagram of Diagrams”, Derek Willan’s comprehensive record of a sector of Greece‘s postal routes gained 13% of the public vote. Gary Leon Hill’s People Who Don’t Know They’re Dead finished second (11% of the public vote) and John Trimmer’s guide to avoiding maritime mishaps, How to Avoid Huge Ships (10%) finished third.
