Bum Fodder : An Absorbing History of Toilet Paper, Paperback / softback Book

Bum Fodder : An Absorbing History of Toilet Paper Paperback / softback


From its origins in Medieval China to the invention of the hi-tech Washlet, a combined cleansing and drying system that removes the need for paper altogether--this fascinating read discusses the origin of the toilet paper roll, how our ancestors coped without it, who came up with the crazy idea of using a dog to promote a personal hygiene product, what a submarine crew does when it runs out of paper, and the ultimate answer to the challenge: is it possible to fold a sheet of toilet paper in half more than seven times?

The ultimate bathroom book, this absorbing look at the humble toilet-roll blends detailed, factual history with humor on one of humankind's most important commodities, a product that is often taken for granted, but difficult to do without
