Ghosts

The Button House Archives

The comic companion to the BBC sitcom Ghosts, perfect for all the family. Everybody leaves a trace. The ghosts of Button House may have been dead a long time – some of them a very long time – but they have all left their mark on the world (even if, in Robin’s case, that mark is just a handprint on the wall of a cave).

Gathered together in this volume is a treasure trove of unearthed cuttings, original records and rare artefacts that explore the unseen lives of those who died at Button House: from Thomas’s love letters to Pat’s ‘ummer Camp Raps’, and from Julian’s campaign promises to Lady Button’s Rules of Etiquette. There are even documents dictated to the one person who can see and hear the ghosts: Alison Cooper. Written by the show’s creators – Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond – this eclectic archive is a unique chance to discover more about the beloved ghosts of Button House.

Thank be to Moonah! A book for all the family, it is as warm-spirited and deliriously daft as the series itself. Ghosts: The Button House Archives ranked No. 5 in The Sunday Times bestseller chart for week ending 29 October 2023.
