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.
Souvenir by Rolf Potts was published by Bloomsbury.
