Unmentionables: A Brief History of Underwear

Unmentionable a brief history of underwearThose of you who know me know that I have thing for underwear. I don't really know why and I don't know how it started but it's fun and I love it and I could spend a whole lot of money on it (according to some of you I already spend a whole lot of money on it - trust me, I could spend *way* more and I've been showing a check of a lot self-restraint lately). Some of you may even know that I have underwear from Paris because friends of mine were travelling and brought be me back some as a souvenir because they knew that my motto is "A girl can never have too much underwear."

So what could me more me than a book about the history of underwear like Unmentionables: A Brief History of Underwear.

It's a coffee table book so lots of pictures and light on text. Each chapter has as little as 2 pages of text and up to about 5 pages. And then lots of pictures.

It's fun, it's me and if I had a coffee table I'd want it to be on it. And if I could add it to my amazon.ca wishlist I would (you can only buy it used).

As someone who loves underwear and loves books maybe I need to start collecting books about underwear? Although I love the art and photography in this book so maybe I need to start an underwear art collection? Or both? If I ever go back to school to do my masters perhaps I should study the history of lingerie? And although I've never had a reason to ever want to go to LA maybe I need to go there to go to the Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie Museum?
