A Library Of Basic Stuff (But Deep)

Bloomsbury Publishing

"Object lessons" when we were kids were generally life's lessons learned the hard way.

But the Object Lessons book series is truly about objects: the stuff of everyday life; banal, mundane, and in this treatment, fascinating. 

Seriously, when was the last time you stopped to think about things like hoods on sweatshirts, or glass, and how we came to use them? 

Series co-editor Christopher Schaberg and Hood (we weren't kidding) author Alison Kinney talk about the overall arc of the series, and the nuances of hoods.  Yes, hoods.
