Brief Histories of Everyday Objects
NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Hilarious, entertaining, and illustrated histories behind some of life's most common and underappreciated objects - from the paperclip and the toothbrush to the sports bra and roller skates. This is both a book of histories and a book about histories. It explores how lies become legends, trade routes spring up, and empires rise and fall―all from the perspective of your toothbrush or toilet.
Written and Illustrated by Andy Warner, Published by Picador, 2016, 224 pages, hardcover.
