Book of Etiquette

Happy February!

I thought I'd share a vintage book of mine, called Book of Etiquette by Lillian Eichler. The book is circa 1922, and gives vital information on the do's and dont's of hosting parties, proper dancing and correct dress for the business woman, as well as much more. I find this book absolutely wonderful. The rules, and etiquette, in this book are certainly true to the era, and at times should still apply to present day. Not only is this book intriguing and informative, it is very attractive. The facade is a rich purple hue and has a golden rose design. Here are some pictures as well as some of my favorite excerpts.

  1. Its crazy how much things have changed since, everything was about manners and how you acted in public back then and of course your appearance was soo important. This is pretty cool :)
