Description
Whatever happened to cuckoo clocks? Or bed curtains? Why do we have so many "friends" but have done away with "acquaintances?" In this witty, illustrated A-to-Z, based on her popular "Let's Bring Back" column at the Huffington Post, Lesley M.M. Blume reminds us why all of these things—plus corsets, calling cards, double features, hot toddies, monocles, parasols, parlor games, and many others—are worthy of revival.

"Blume's book is about more than just populating your life with antique trinkets; it's about curating your own charming lifestyle while celebrating the Wildean ideals of life as art."—The New Yorker

"A charming slip of a book ... that quite deliciously and convincingly has the romantics among us pining for the ways of the dearly held past."—Chicago Tribune

"Whimsical yet informative.... As Blume herself might put it, we just think this book is the bee's knees."—O, The Oprah Magazine
