Lovers of nostalgia as well as those inclined to regard the past through rose-tinted spectacles will be delighted at the latest offering from The Threadbone Press.
Hot on the heels of its reprint of Unique Dorset Aeroplanes, Women and Tractors Magazine's Second World War "spirit-lifter" The Unique Dorset Aeroplanes, Women and Tractors Christmas 1944 Souvenir Special comes Allen Ian's second most famous landmark publication: Remembering When Britain Was Great (originally published in 1958 in two volumes as Now Britain Is Great I: Traditional Festivities and Now Britain Is Great II: Traditional Occupations).
Described by Dorset local historian Iris Cocksedge (who wrote the newly-commissioned historical notes for the new edition) as "a feast for the eye and a tonic for the soul", this sumptuously illustrated combined volume is "just what we need amid the Drexit gloom, rising hydrogenated fat prices and the onset of autumn heartburn." "It's like aloe vera for the mind", says lifestyle guru and well-being consultant Bee Mindful.
Fully endorsed by both the Royal Dorset Women's Institute, the DHRA and Nuclear Families Reunited, Remembering When Britain Was Great is a hot tip for this year's best sellers list and has already been nominated as their book of the month by 1 in 10 members of Threadstones staff.
