Apr 13, 2018

As a travel writer, former Wichitan Rolf Potts has seen his share of souvenirs, which made him the perfect writer to delve into the history of souvenirs for Bloomsbury’s Object Lessons, a book series about the hidden lives of ordinary things. And he discovered that souvenirs aren’t exactly ordinary, they have a rich past that goes back millennia, and even our forefathers weren’t immune to the allure.

The Marginalia podcast audio will be available soon.
