Spike Milligan - Transports of Delight (1974)

It’s all there on the cover really.
This was one of the late great Spike Milligan’s many books of oddness and absurdity.  It was published in 1974 by Penguin and is, according to an online review, a slim volume of amusing photographs over which Spike had made various irreverent and humorous comments.  They then go on to recommend alternative choices of Milligan books more worthy of your money than this one!

More importantly to us than the value of the content though is that this is yet another outing for that Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (aka Doppelganger) space suit and helmet.  Presuming the cover shoot was done close to publication, this was after UFO, Doomwatch, Don Quick, Smash Mash and The Goodies had finished with it and around about the same time that The Tomorrow People collected it from space in the back of a van.  I kid you not!
