Old How-To Books Answered
I've always been a fan of old how to books. They often have tips and techniques you don't find in contemporary books. Sometimes they are just plain strange. Other times they are painfully outdated, like an old Popular Mechanics article I came across that shows you how to improve your toaster by adding asbestos to it.
Last weekend I stumbled upon this old doll making book at a thrift store. The entire book shows how to make dolls in a kind of odd folk art style, and would never get printed today.
In spite of the fact I don't really have room for more books right now, I couldn't help myself and bought it anyhow.
Has anyone else come across any interesting how to books lately, or have favorite classics in their collection?
