Let's Bring Back BookChronicle Books
The Huffington Post's "Let's Bring Back..." columnist, Lesley M. M. Blume, invites you to consider whatever happened to cuckoo clocks? Or bed curtains? Why do we have so many "friends" but have done away with the much more useful word "acquaintance"? All of these things, plus hot toddies, riddles, proverbs, corsets, calling cards, and many more, are due for a revival. Throughout this whimsical, beautifully illustrated encyclopaedia of nostalgia, Let's Bring BackåÊleads readers to rediscover the things that entertained, awed, beautified, satiated, and fascinated in eras past.
