  • In the tradition of A Cartoon History of the Universe and, most recent, Randall Munroe’s What If? comes Brief Histories of Everyday Objects, an intrepid, graphic tour through the unusual stories behind the creation of some of the overlooked items that surround us in our daily lives.

    Chapters introduce readers to a cast of inventors whose ideas led to the ballpoint pen riots, cowboy wars, and really bad Victorian practical jokes.

    Structured around the different locations in our home and daily life - the kitchen, the bathroom, the office, and the grocery store - Andy Warner traces the often surprising histories behind the items we often take for granted.
