The Book for the Home

£14.99

Product description

A classic reference book of the 1960s, vital for any housewife!
Bound in yellow with black and green lettering and cover illustration, which extends over both front and back covers and is reminiscent of the designs used in Habitat, Heals and their ilk. Although text block edges are slightly age toned, all text and illustrations within are clear and some are in glorious colour. Of considerable interest in its descriptions of the "modern" equipment illustrated, this large, heavy book, which will be delivered by courier, possesses a certain kitsch charm and is in remarkably good condition for its age.
