Umbrellas: The More You Know

history of umbrella cover

A History of the Umbrella
Crawford
1970

Back in 2009 when we started this little dog and pony show, a few of the titles got lost in the shuffle between migrations and our own incompetence. This title has been on my “lost/broken” list for a while and now I am happy to re-post with new and better pictures.

This title is not necessarily awful for some libraries and probably would work in a deep collection on fashion accessories or design. Holly and I included it here because we always get a few laughs from titles that are so specific or on an esoteric subject. In my near 20 years in library service, I can confidently say that I have never had anyone ask for material about umbrellas. (They did ask if the library had umbrellas to lend.)

When I found this lovely selection for ALB, I couldn’t stop laughing. I particularly love the manly look of jewelry and leisure suit. I think we have all learned from these pictures that the right accessories really do tie an outfit together.

Getting my groove on!
