Very Pinteresting!

This is the 1952 version of Pinterest: women sharing inspirational photos and ideas about food with each other through the newest medium: telephones. Today our communications are wireless, but this cover emphasizes the connection these women have literally through the phone lines tying them together.

This booklet suggests that women have nothing better to do than chatter, and that they have no external interests outside their kitchens — much like criticism leveled at Pinterest.
