Shaped Weaving Krevitsky and Ericson 1974 I don’t even know where to begin. Prepare for shock and awful. I can appreciate the skills of a weaver. Regardless of the skill involved with these creations, I just can’t see any circumstance
The Official Frisbee Handbook Norton 1972 This poor book was barely held together. Pages were almost crunchy and some were falling out. I used ILL for this one and I am surprised someone actually sent it. It looked well used,
TV’S Top Ten
Shows and Their Stars
For the over 40 crowd, can you remember these shows? (Extra points for the under 30 set.) This is another example of youth nonfiction from yesteryear. There’s nothing really special about this book, although I didn’t realize that Helen Hunt was in the Swiss Family Robinson show. Actually, I didn’t even remember the TV show. The book was probably better.
The Bartender’s Guide Duffy 1972 From the cover to the recipes, this book is suuuuper dated. This is a little paperback with yellowed pages and tiny font. The cover has a very 70’s vibe. It does have a pretty convenient
God’s Gift Over 100 Studs, Stallions and Dreamboats from the 70s and 80s Cave 2007 Hold on to your hats those of you of a certain age! I will bet you once swooned over these guys. This funny little book
Women’s Day 101 Sweaters You Can Knit and Crochet Saunders, editor 1973 Another favorite from the craft section for all the yarn fans out there. This book has everything: sweaters, vests, capes, ponchos, and some weird fluffy number (see the
Modern Needle Craft Allied Graphic Arts 1971 Time to get your craft groove on. For the crochet crowd, take a look at the granny square “fashions”. I know the men will want to get a granny square tie. I am
Osmonds and the New Pop Scene
I am sure if you are of a certain age you will identify with some of these “new” pop scene acts. Extra points if you can name everyone on the cover. Although the Osmond brothers are the featured title holder, there are lots of pictures of the early 1970s pop culture crowd. In case you are keeping score, I can name everyone on the cover and in most of the other pictures. However, some of the groups, I have never heard of. (Mike Curb congregation? Rock Flowers ?)
How sad is it that I can name pop stars from the late 60s/early 70s, but can’t remember things like where I put my keys. Too bad we can’t “weed” my brain of some of the more useless knowledge.
