A Little Bit Country – Awful Library Books

Country Crafts and Food

This is one of those craft books around a theme. It’s less about craft instruction and more about style. The pictures are carefully composed to create a look as opposed to focusing on a particular item. This runs the gamut from decor to clothing to cooking. This probably runs closer to design or home decor rather than straight up crafting. Soooo what Dewey number do we give this item? Most were in the 745 range but a significant percentage went with 641. This kind book really bugs me, because I do want to stick it in both 745 and 641. I did a lot of buying craft books a few years ago and whenever the books mixed and matched topics like this, it made me a bit twitchy. To be totally honest, I really avoided this type of book since it really did not do either topic justice. But I digress.

Aside from my catalog anxieties, this is really just a pretty little set piece and in my special world this would probably be in the 700s and I would learn to live with a twitch for the recipes. I mean, who would not want to sit around in ridiculous clothing eating a cucumber ring supreme?
