Good Housekeeping was one of very few publications that was printed throughout the war, despite paper shortages and rations. Lovingly selected from Good Housekeeping’s archive, this nostalgic facsimile reproduction of the food, fashion, fiction and fitness features that formed the backbone of Britain’s wartime homemaking is sure to delight and inspire. Including stories and adverts, along with the cleaning and craft tips that defined the ‘make do and mend’ generation, this is empathetic history at its most charming and evocative. With features ranging from managing without milk to how to get on with Americans, this compendium is at once practical, amusing and even moving. With a no-nonsense cloth-bound jacket featuring one of the most memorable magazine covers from the decade, this really is the perfect nostalgic treat.
