St. Monday

by Esther McManus
£8.00

A poignant mini comic about work.

The text is taken from 'Useful Work vs Useless Toil', by William Morris (re-published by Reitlanden Women's Office).
The images are informed by 'Time, Work Discipline and Industrial Capitalism', by E. P. Thompson.

"Saint Monday is the tradition of absenteeism on a Monday. The tradition has been common among craft workers since at least the seventeenth century when the workweek ran from Monday to Saturday"
