Norman’s concise and thoughtful foreword provides context for these reproductions of British government leaflets from World War II, distributed in hopes of increasing resourceful use of rationed food. Whether exhorting citizens to use dried eggs, take advantage of tough cuts of meat, or put up their own preserves, the lively, upbeat material recalls the efforts to “make do” and carry on in the face of a grim reality.
