"The Amazing Hankerchief: Chronicler of Romance, Heroism, Fashion, and Art Through the Ages" by Ann Mahony

April 18, 2015 -

Handkerchiefs became custodians and couriers of history, recording our progression from railroad, to steamship, to air travel; from the birth of television to women’s right to vote; and from Shakespearean sonnets to children’s nursery rhymes. “Hankies” chronicled adventure, travel, romance, history, politics, sports, and more, with stylish and enchanting graphics. Discover the stories hidden in their evanescent folds; your mind will engage and your heart will connect with these textiles of history.
