07 Nov 2009 – gift from Michelle

An excellent book, subtitled "A Celebration of Everyday Design" that basically looks at the homewares we all actually had during a period covering the 1950s to the 1980s, with the main concentration on the 60s and 70s.  Lots of things that Matthew and I remember from our childhoods, great archive pictures from magazines and catalogues, and text that is tongue-in-cheek at times but no nasty or faux-ironic.  A really fun read.

Not tweeting about these reviews as feel obscurely guilty for sitting and writing reviews while ill. Thing is, I can do things for half an hour at a time, I’m just not fit for human company just yet!
