Everything You Ever Wanted To Bring Back Is Now In A Book

We remember sitting with author Lesley M. M. Blume last year at Pastis, talking over cappuccinos about all the things from the past we wish would come back in vogue. So, we're not shocked that the stunning girl-about-town's most recent book is titled Let's Bring Back: An Encyclopedia of Forgotten-Yet-Delightful, Chic, Useful, Curious, and Otherwise Commendable Things from Times Gone By. It's a gorgeously illustrated champagne bubble of a read, stuffed with hundreds of forgotten objects, pastimes, recipes, words, architectural works, and personas (all in alphabetical order) that definitely need to make a comeback. Inspired by her cult Huffington Post column of the same name, Let's Bring Back is a must for that perfect, cozy rainy afternoon—the entries will give you an aftertaste that's elegant, amusing, and, naturally, beyond nostalgic. Bonbons, fainting couches, hedge mazes, Ali McGraw, and witch hazel all make the list, plus there are contributions from the likes of Kate Spade, Nora Ephron, Arianna Huffington, Jonathan Adler, and chef Daniel Boulud, who's got one mean recipe for "Pot-Au-Feu Royal." Trust, before you get to the letter "L" you'll be rummaging in your parent's attic, searching for a monocle.
