intimate building/summer reading 2

August 6, 2012

So finishing up my history crush’s latest book If Walls Could Talk; an Intimate History of the Home.  Lucy Worsley gives a cheery account of the march to modern domesticity. A bit heavy on the “how we live now is just like the Middle Ages”, ie open plan architecture and fresh food… but it is filled with fun facts that make you think more about your day-to-day habits. Did you know that a dining table was refered to as a board, therefore the “chairman of the board”….
