Handyman’s Book

This fun little number popped up while antiquing Friday. Since I had never seen one in real life and since it was just $8, it clearly had to come home with me!

Isn’t the cover great? It’s a 1957 reprint of a 1951 guide to everything you need to know about tools and household handy work.

Much of it remains relevant today. Some of it is quite sexist. I love the graphics but am a little annoyed by how adoring she looks here.

Nonetheless, I look forward to studying it a little more closely. It’s well organized, illustrated and easy to follow.

Who knows? Maybe I’ll learn something useful!
