    Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.
    We pull and tug on blankets to cover our bodies, to see us through the night, or an illness. Blankets shield us in mourning, and witness our most intimate pleasures. We are born into blankets. Blankets keep us alive, and they cover us in death. Blanket reveals blankets everywhere- film, art, geology, disasters, battlefields, resistance, home.
    Curious, fearless, vulnerable, and critical, Blanket interweaves cultural critique with memoir to cast new light on a ubiquitous object- It transforms an ordinary thing into a vibrant and vital carrier of stories and secrets, an object of inheritance and belonging, a companion to uncover.
    Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in the The Atlantic.
