An Assortment of Factual Fascination


At QI's core is the astonishing fact; painstakingly researched and distilled to a brilliant and shocking clarity.

  • Cows moo in regional accents
  • Traffic lights existed before cars
  • The Cornish for 'breath' is anal

Packed with the best bits from a decade of QI, these factbooks will make you look at the universe in an entirely new way. 

General Ignorance

The Books of General Ignorance are comprehensive catalogues of all the misconceptions, mistakes and misunderstandings in 'common knowledge' that will make you wonder why anyone bothers going to school.

Animal Ignorance is a collection of 100 wildly interesting creatures. Marvel at the elephants that walk on tiptoe, pigs that shine in the dark, and the woodlouse that drinks through its bottom.

Banter & Biography

Advanced Banter is the ultimate compendium of crisp one-liners, knockout jokes, droll asides and universal truths - in short, extraordinary quotes for any eventuality.

The QI Book of the Dead is a biographical dictionary with a twist, celebrating the lives of the justly famous and the undeservedly obscure.
