Aprons and books about aprons.

I never cease to be surprised by the designs that pop up on aprons. This lady might have been me 200 years ago!

...and a close-up

It is incredible what you find when you go looking on Amazon.com. Type in any subject, and there are bound to be dozens of books about it. I read about these books on another blog dedicated to aprons, and finally decided I had to have them. I had lunch with two friends today, who are very understanding about my passion for linens of all kinds, but they raised their eyebrows when they saw these books. "What would anyone find to write about aprons??" Well, there are lots of photos of course, but a lot of fascinating history and information too... fascinating to apron lovers only, I suppose..

Gina can you give me a short review of the books? Are they worth the $$$ for the apron lovers out there? I might need to put them on my Christmas wish list. Thanks!
