If you liked the BBC hit podcast, A History of the World in 100 Objects, you won't want to miss seeing the images in the new book featuring all 100 objects.
The series explores the microhistories of artifacts from Ife sculpture to the modern day credit card. Together, the objects weave a story of humankind. The podcasts are still available for download while you're on the hold list for the book.
The following titles are just a few of my favorite microhistories. The Library has many more titles to choose from so look for your favorite things too.
