Eyewitness: Flags

Eyewitness: Flags

I recently found a whole treasure trove of old Eyewitness books at Mollie’s Used Book store recently. This was one of the new titles I picked up.

As with other books in the series, Eyewitness books are like mini-museums on specific topics. This one was about flags. First, there are some chapters on historical use of flags, and then terminology and parts of the flag. Then, the book has individual chapters on countries and their flags. Sometimes more than one flag is grouped together because of circumstances related to the history of their flags.

These books were my lifeline when I was growing up, before there was high-speed internet. It’s all well and good to read about the world, but it’s even better to have a reference book full of pictures to see the world too.
