From 1895, ?Hobbies Weekly? brought much-needed practical adviceand inspiration to bespectacled boys in V-neck pullovers, youngladies in sensible shoes and their pipe-smoking parents (of bothsexes) throughout the Empire. Fretwork plans, model-makinginstructions and photography tuition rubbed shoulders withhome-made insect repellent, conjuring tricks, milk bottle care,simple refrigeration and seamanship. We especially commend theseries ?Kinks For Handy Men?. In a book of carefully-selectedextracts from this august journal, The Ammonite Press is proud toreintroduce these solid values at a time when society couldn?t bein greater need of guidance in such useful skills as ornamentalglass-working at home and the production of bewildered rabbits fromhats. How many young people these days can construct a carrier wavetransmitter at the dining table? How much more satisfying would bethe work of David Hockney had he made his own easel, palette andoil paints? This book is bound to appeal to any young person inneed of a phenakistoscope, those women whose home is without aboot-cleaning stool and all men who wish to benefit from the advicegiven in a 1950s series of articles entitled: ?Please TheWife?.
