It’s simply one of those books that you can return to again and again, yet still be enchanted, there is so much detail that you almost certainly can notice different things every time you have a peek in.
It’s very nostalgic. And I see it as a great source for identifying things to look out for at boot sales and charity shops alike.
It covers every area you could want, from fashion and dressmaking to food and cinema. My favourite pages are the beauty ones; oh I do love vintage make-up packaging and the toys are all traditional, not a computer console in sight.
The food pages have me gasping every single time, all those chocolate vintage tins, nowadays they just don’t have a patch on these. It’s funny how some of the brands are still the ones we depend on today.
Although much of the packaging has been updated, I did notice the Golden Syrup one is exactly the same- how confident and satisfied as a brand must they be.
Whilst the Nivea crème has certainly been modernized, the brand still stays true to it’s original colours of navy blue.
This book is a complete delve into another world. An era I didn’t live through but sure am intrigued by. This is literally a visual scrapbook crammed full of exciting things for any of you nostalgic fans out there like me.
