      This was a gift from a very thoughtful friend. I love it! My favorite coffee table book with historic pictures and info. I looked at it today in fact. I make aprons as wearable art and ritual, so basically, this book rocks.

      Gosh, I love this book. If you like aprons, even if you don't wear them or make them, this is a really fun book to have.

      Great book - wonderful pictures of aprons from Joyce Cheney's collection plus a wonderful introduction covering a brief history of the apron.
