French retro domestic encyclopedia from 1955, "from the paint roller to the thimble".
From the use of a vacuum or mop to how to decorate a living room or set a table, through the art of ironing or managing the budget, this book identifies and explains all was supposed to know an accomplished mid century housewife... these rules of life seem well outdated today, but it's an interesting way to be immersed in the daily life of the 50s!
The book is decorated with about fifteen photos of 50s interiors.
