The Bold And The Beautiful Of Bathroom Stuff...

It’s kind of amazing how someone could take the items that we use in our bathrooms and turn them into such a fun and interesting book, but that is exactly what Holman Wang has done with abc Bathroom Stuff xyz . He brings detail and attention to the otherwise humdrum things that we take for granted, things that we don’t care about until we run out of them.

The book features 60 mini-chapters with text highlighting the intricate details of the "stuff" around your bathroom. Highly illustrated with full-color photographs, it’s the ultimate toilet topper. This book is unique in that it has four different covers: a rubber duck, a set of soaps, a toothbrush, and a faucet.

Some "stuff" included within these well-photographed pages include:

  • Hair dryers
  • Mouthwash
  • Bathroom scales
  • Shampoo
  • Nail polish

One item in the book that I especially loved was the toilet paper with the hearts. And if you’re like me and can’t stand to be anywhere without something to read, the magazine holder is a must-have. The items are highlighted with historical data and fun, pertinent facts. I found myself wanting to go out and buy all the things that I didn’t have just to make my bathroom complete. You will thoroughly enjoy reading this book.
