Humans were making, utilizing, perfecting, and adorning umbrellas for millennia--holding them over the heads of rulers, signalling classification differences, and exploring their complete resourceful capability in people stories and novels.
In the spirit of the easiest literary present books, Brolliology is a fantastically designed and illustrated journey via literature and heritage.
