You may remember the KS three-books series Manners, Style, and Occasions in Red, Green, and Blue covers. I must have gifted the other two, but I still have my copy of Manners. Lucky thing, I just spoke to them and the charming books are now discontinued which makes me happy that I kept one copy at least. The illustrations by Virginia Johnson were a good part of the charm of these unpretentious quides to social graces in this modern time. I had to pass on this quote from Andy Spade in the Gifts, Gifting, Re-Gifting section of Manners.
"Re-Gifting is an artform. But beware: If you re-gift to others, they may re-gift unto you"
I plan to talk about the delicate artform of re-gifting in an upcoming post. You had to know I was going to talk about this sooner or later, didn't you?
So beautifully and simply rendered.

I love how this is illustrated with her head turned just slightly.
Elements of delicate style.
Even from the neck down, you can still
imagine the conversation.
