Praise

“Delightful…The book is also filled with illustrations and plenty of fascinating facts.” BOOK PAGE

“Marion Rankine’s tour through umbrella culture suggests how widely this apparently simple accessory has been regarded with reverence, superstition and fascination… she is a thoughtful anthologist of the diverse literary examples she collects.” —THE GUARDIAN (UK)

“This book is an enjoyable reminder that a brolly is never just a brolly.” SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“If you don’t see the point in a cultural history of umbrellas, then friend, you are not thinking big enough. Brolliology has it all!” -VOX

“With its fun facts and detailed illustrations, we predict that Brolliology: A History of the Umbrella in Life and Literature will make a “brolly” enthusiast out of you yet.” —HELLO GIGGLES

“Shot through with an opulent array of beautiful illustrations and photographs, Brolliology is a little gem of a book about what actually turns about to be a surprisingly absorbing and rich subject.” —THE NATIONAL (UAE)

“A wonderfully readable history of the humble umbrella”Southern Living Magazine
