“Hello folly, 21st-century take on an 18th-century oddity”—Financial Times
“There are wonderful follies all over the world, but the big difference is that the Brits can laugh at themselves,”Gwyn says. “Elsewhere they don’t quite have that sense of self-deprecation and amusement.”
Gwyn founded the Folly Fellowship 35 years ago, has published six books and 40 ebooks about follies.
“The thrill of finding new follies never diminishes,” Gwyn says. “I recently found a cracker in Germany.” Safe excitement indeed, the kind of excitement the DMC champions.
Gwyn and wife Yvonne liv in Crouch End, North London. A stunning view of The City to the south but only if you can tear yourself away from the amazing photos of follies hanging throughout the house.
Gwyn is on pages 30 and 31 of Dull Men of Great Britain: Celebrating the Ordinary.
