Old Moore’s Almanack is an astrological almanack, which has been published regularly in Britain since 1697. If offers predictions on a number of world events, including sport, finance and weather. It also features numerous advertisements that encourage the reader to sample the wares of various clairvoyants or others with extra senses or abilities. While many were satisfied to live in blissful ignorance of the publication, or alternatively to simply leave it to its fate in a dentist’s waiting room, others felt that Old Moore’s Almanack deserved a little more attention.
Ken and Tony Bromfield, a father-son duo boasting exceptional talent in the realms of illustration, design and good humour, thus invented the Old Bore’s Almanack. Parodying the original with fabricated adverts and an entirely original (though also fabricated) star chart, this is a rare example of genius and hilarity that almost never saw the light of day.
