Vladimir Putin's image functions as a political talisman far outside of the borders of his own country. Studying material objects, fan fiction, and digital media, Putin Kitsch in America traces the satirical uses of Putin's public persona and how he stands as a foil for other world leaders. Uncovering a wide variety of material culture – satirical, scatological, even risqué – made possible by new print-on-demand technologies, Alison Rowley argues that the internet is crucial to the creation of contemporary Putin memorabilia. She explains that these items are evidence of young people's continued interest and participation in politics, even as some experts decry what they see as the opposite. The book addresses the ways in which explicit sexual references about government officials are used as everyday political commentary in the United States. The number of such references skyrocketed during the 2016 US presidential election campaign, and turning a critical eye to Putin kitsch suggests that the phenomenon will continue when Americans next return to the polls. An examination of how the Russian president's image circulates via memes, parodies, apps, and games, Putin Kitsch in America illustrates how technological change has shaped both the kinds of kitsch being produced and the nature of political engagement today.

Hideous hats, ridiculous wraps, embarrassing neckties, and more they're all on display at The Museum of Kitschy Stitches, a photographic gallery of knitting and crocheting horrors. Want to see sci-fi inspired headgear from the 1940s? Gender-bending sweater sets from the '50s and '60s? Groovy outerwear from the '70s? Museum curator Stitchy McYarnpants has sifted through decades of vintage catalogs, patterns, and advertisements to assemble this astonishingly awful collection. Along the way, she provides sidesplitting commentary about the models and their very unfortunate fashion choices. It's essential reading for knitters and nostalgia buffs!

The journey of a woman who is forced to abandon the restrictive safety of her life and travel back into a secret, disturbing, yet richly human family history, The Green Library is an unforgettable story about the profound need to remember and to belong - to the present and the past, to the familiar and the strange.

Preserve memories and create new family heirlooms—by transforming gorgeous vintage tablecloths into beautiful quilts! Dig into grandma’s attic, visit a flea market, buy new reproduction panels…even old tablecloths with holes or stains can become part of a lovely quilt. With clear guidance and photos, learn how to convert the best parts of each cloth into quilt blocks and appliqué elements that can be combined with commercial fabrics for extra vibrancy. Customize your design to get the most out of any tablecloth—parcel out a single cloth for multiple projects, or combine pieces of different cloths into one quilt. “Blue roses in rows, red cherries in bunches, brown pots and pans in golden squares—anyone who has ever been enticed by the colors and styles of vintage tablecloths, like ones produced in the 1920s by Wilendur, will be further delighted by the thought of quilting them…[The authors] cite fabric requirements, measurements, colors, and they clearly describe blocks, construction, and borders with clean graphics for finishing these beauties.”—Publishers Weekly
