Ah men, complicated creatures they are. Or so we thought until we got our hands on this little gem!

Written for the bourgeoisie of the 1930's, this clever little wives handbook tells you everything you need to know to become a good wife.

Not only do you get fantastic snippets of advice like while face powder may be the way to catch a man, baking powder is the way to keep him', but you also get illustrated line drawings to help your understanding of the content.

What are you waiting for? Stop your man comparing you to the typist at the office, buy the book, get baking and have the perfect life as the Good Wife!


  • This little guide was written for the middle classes of the 1930s who were reading one of the first modern self-help books
  • Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings
  • Contains advice delightfully arcane and timelessly true

"Don't forget that very true remark that while face powder may catch a man, baking powder is the stuff to hold him"

"After all is said and done, husbands are not terribly difficult to manage"
