I think it makes a wonderful gift tucked into an apron pocket.
$5.99 is comparable with other similar books of it's size.
This book has a wonderful texture and I love the graphics and the sweet "thoughts" that are incorperated in this darling little book.
I have both Apronisms and The Apron Book by author Ellyanne Geisel and
I look forward to seeing other books by this author.
When I got my first copies of Geisel's vintage linens and apron books, I was fascinated by the thought that ordinary kitchen linens had become the subject of books and people were buying these books and commenting on them. For me as so many others, it is the nostalgia that these books evoke, an opportunity to revisit and remember simpler times when I didn't have to worry about when went on in the world. I've given these books as gifts to my friends who also like to remember the carefree days of our youth.
I now have an embroidery business and my favorite designs are recreations of hand embroidered designs from the past - many found in these books - that women painstakingly embroidered in their spare time on towels, sheets and clothing.
When I opened my mail here lay this tiny 3.5" by 2.5" book with the beautiful cover art I had seen on my screen. Ok, that's fine, I open it up and discover:
A treasure trove of beautiful pictures (I did get pictures of old aprons), little sayings, and stories from the author that are meant to inspire the reader. My favorite saying was "Wear pearls with your apron and you're dressed up enough (pg.20)." The little anecdotes in here are great to pull out once a day to give yourself some inspiration. Or, if you're just having a gloomy day, sit down and read the whole thing!
While it wasn't what I expected I'll surely get some enjoyment out of this book. The colors are rich and while the pages are tiny the font is large enough to read comfortably. In fact just reading it makes me want to go pull on an apron and bake some cookies.
Very cute things on the inside though. Took me 15 minutes to read through it or less.
