The Huffington Post's "Let's Bring Back..." columnist, Lesley M. M. Blume, invites you to consider whatever happened to cuckoo clocks? Or bed curtains? Why do we have so many "friends" but have done away with the much more useful word "acquaintance"? All of these things, plus hot toddies, riddles, proverbs, corsets, calling cards, and many more, are due for a revival. Throughout this whimsical, beautifully illustrated encyclopedia of nostalgia, Blume breathes new life into the elegant, mysterious, and delightful trappings of bygone eras, honoring the timeless tradition of artful living along the way. Inspired by her much loved column of the same name and featuring entries from famous icons of style and culture,Let's Bring Back leads readers to rediscover the things that entertained, awed, beautified, satiated, and fascinated in eras past.

This is a marvelous book! So many things we took for granted in the day, but isn't nostalgia
grand? Lesley M.M. Blume in her own charming way certainly offers some trivia for the young and old alike. A 'must read' for the 21st Century!

A fun way to travel back in time both in our own lifetime and the pleasures and fads of times long gone by.

A lighthearted read looking back on mannerisms and products that ruled decades past. I found myself laughing and nodding in agreement as I read.
