American Ingenuity & Innovation: Kitchen Appliance Manuals

April 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm PDT

Sponsored by the Book Club of California.

In-person and virtual presentation

Exhibition opening: American Ingenuity & Innovation: Kitchen Appliance Manuals. From air conditioners to yogurt makers, kitchen appliance manuals—with step by step directions for achieving a desired outcome—are incredible examples of early technical writing. The instruction manuals on display reflect a wide range of American consumers and provide today’s bibliophiles and graphic artists the opportunity to study the typography, designs, and color combinations of product marketing from the past.

Exhibition opening and remarks by Liz Pollock, author, collector, and proprietor of the Cook’s Bookcase
