A brilliant gift of a book for you or a retro loving friend!
on 10 September 2013
This is a beautifully printed, large book using high quality paper with stunning photographs throughout. A perfect gift idea for any retro enthusiast. It covers different eras starting with the 1920-30s and ending up with the early 90s.
Each section features a real person's home, which represents the particular era being discussed. It's absolutely fascinating to see the wonderful ways in which people have displayed their vintage and retro collections, and there are also styling tips to get you inspired.
Handy restoration, cleaning and collecting tips, appear throughout the book, along with product recognition information, and vintage pieces, makes and brands to look out for. To be honest I have barely touched upon the breadth of this lovely book, as I have many hours to spend with it yet myself!
However I know that it will be one of those rare books that will keep me coming back for more and it is sure to become well loved. It will be living on my coffee table for the next few months, whilst I fully absorb all that it has to offer.
