Kritik

"The Anniversary Volume has just been released and a flick through shows that much of the advice is as pertinent now as it was back in 1919. These days we might not necessarily need to know how to make a hog scratcher or stretch a pelt, but the below extract on how to make a window garden is timeless." Woman's Way
