The Kitchen Linens Book By EllyAnne Geisel


Some of you know that I love vintage fabrics - especially things from the 30's and 40's - well, and some of the 50's too! I thought that the APron Book by Ms. Geisel waws wonderful - and now there is another new title to add to my bookshelf. I love the presentation of this book. The paper 'feels' good, the typeface makes it a pleasure to read and I love the way the cover underneath the dust jacket looks great too.
This little gem of a book primarily covers, as the title so aptly indicates - Vintage Kitchen Linens.
Tablecloths, aprons, those funky little crocheted doilies that were so ubiquitous for so long, napkins, dishtowels - you get the idea! Sprinkled throughout the book are little vignettes; photos of vintage kitchen wares, photos and some great recipes. One of the coolest little treasures in the included Vintage Butterick Transfer patterns for embroidery.How cool is that?!
I love this book and am happy to add it to my bookshelf next to "The Apron Book". This book is published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and is available through Amazon and your independent book seller.
