Whether souvenirs from trips, giftshop specials with snappy slogans, or a piece of delicate china from great-grandma's tea set, cups appeal to everyone. Cups and cup paraphernalia fill this charming little volume to the brim. Witty text discusses the history of these items--selected by art historian Garth Clark and ranging from custom-made collector pieces to mass-produced advertising gimmicks.
