We welcome in the Bank Holiday with our latest online obsession, 'Ugly Belgian Houses'

Just as William Blake once proffered the philosophy, "to see a world in a grain of sand", this Bank Holiday Monday we are finding joy in the most mundane of subjects. Introducing our latest not-so-guilty pleasure, aptly named, Ugly Belgian Houses. With captions as witty as its subjects are hideous – as the creator Hannes Coudenys somewhat forthrightly states, "Because most Belgian houses are ugly. Even mine." – browsing through real estate has never been so entertaining. Pre-order the book here.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
