We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

The Family of Appliances You Can Believe In

1983. Berman, Hariette Estel. The Family of Appliances You Can Believe In. Santa Clara, CA: Triton Museum of Art 1983. [16]p, many b&w ills. Text by Jo Farb Hernandez. Very good paperbound with diecut cover (slight edge wear). ** Exhibition catalogue of 14 household items constructed in mixed media (chiefly copper, brass, silver, other metals, and plastic). Each one--toaster, vacuum cleaner, refrigerator, iron, etc.--is adapted with features that will add convenience and beauty to every housewife's day. The crockpot, for instance, opens to reveal ads for interior decorating schemes. A commentary on "women's work" and consumer goods, very much of its feminist day. Scarce. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: A5638)
