Beauty and Brains

Back in the nineteenth century, aspects of your character were thought to be determined by the shape of certain parts of your brain. Phrenologists--a phrase that comes from the Greek words for "mind" and "knowledge"--would diagnose patients by running their fingers over a person's skull and referring to a cartographical chart of the brain, like the one printed on this vintage-style pillow. A potent relic of Victorian culture, this thought-provoking pillow tells a fascinating story of a long-forgotten technique and a time gone by. Handmade by a family-run design studio in Florence, Massachusetts.

      I was worried the padding in the pillow would be cheap feeling or that it just wouldn't have enough, but the padding makes the pillow feel like a high quality product.
