    Kitchy Fun for the Tablecloth Collector!

    What a fun book! tons of wonderful pictures of vintage souvenir linens - tablecloths, towels and aprons. These 'Kitchy' fun textiles are little snapshots of the days when Mom and Dad would pack up the kids in the car and set out to see the states. They have great graphics. Great historical information about the history of the American tourist industry, accurate dating information and the history of tourist sites from each state. A great read and very informative! Pamela Glasell has done it again! Highly recommend!
