Chances are you either have an old pantry in your home or one in your memory. Or, perhaps you want to create an old-style pantry and are not sure where to go for ideas or information. In this recession-weary world, pantries are making a comeback because they are their own place to store additional foodstuffs or canned goods, whether bought or put up yourself. They also provide assurance that you have a space for everything and everything in its place.

Written by Catherine Seiberling Pond, The Pantry—Its History and Modern Uses includes principal photography by Susan Daley and Steve Gross and images from their archive of historic kitchens. The book is also illustrated with vintage images about American pantries and includes select quotations from primary and literary sources.

The Pantry throws open the doors of an interesting utilitarian space, revealing its historical evolution and nostalgic memories, as well as design inspirations and style tips for a pantry of your own. An unprecedented history and design book of an important domestic place, it includes chapters on:
“In those good old days we used to have pantries and china closets and butteries and all that sort of thing, and people were contented.” 
—Eugene Field, The House, 1896

Five years after its publication, The Pantry–Its History and Modern Uses remains the only design book about the history and use of the pantry in the American home. Illustrated with over 75 color photographs and vintage images, this hard bound book with its pantry lore, history and ideas will inspire any homeowner or kitchen person. It makes a fine and affordable gift in these leaner times but still comes bursting with ideas and inspiration–and just enough nostalgic longing to warm any hearth and home.
