Full description for The Apron Book
Vintage aprons and modern designs are turning up in movies, magazine spreads, upscale shops, and hip retail venues, whose trendy line of aprons is selling as fast as they can stock them. THE APRON BOOK is an infectiously enthusiastic guide to aprons, old and new, that are suddenly everywhere. Aprons take us back to our favorite place - hearth and home. Vintage aprons help us remember home and family the way they used to be, while bright and sassy contemporary aprons confirm that nesting is all the rage. Actress and trendsetter Julia Roberts has a closetful of vintage aprons. Celebrity custom-made apron auctions have become an annual event for several popular charities in the past few years. THE APRON BOOK provides full-colour photos of new and vintage aprons from the author's collection, patterns for four basic apron styles and myriad variations, recipes, tips on collecting and preserving vintage aprons, and heart-tugging stories from the author's travelling apron exhibit. The book also explores the heyday of aprons and looks at the various roles aprons still play when worn in the kitchen, around the house, by the outside barbeque, on the job, and for special occasions.
