Book Description

The phrase “home ec” recalls fusty visions of baking and sewing classes, but this illustrated guide showcases the movement’s true foundations: applying scientific methods to domestic work. Compiled from a wide range of vintage sources, Home Economics is chock-full of thrifty tips, time-tested advice, informative charts, and tasty recipes that gently teach the art and science of housekeeping. Inside is a wealth of information on health and hygiene, shopping and cookery, furnishings and decor, cleaning and safety, and so much more.

Old-fashioned, yes. But outdated? Never! This is real home economics that everyone will be proud to know.

JENNIFER McKNIGHT TRONTZ is the author of several books, including The Good Citizen’s Handbook and How to Be Popular. She lives in New York City.
