The book "World (Toilet) History"

The book "World (Toilet) History" is the unique publication in which the history of the development of toilet culture from the ancient times and to the present is described in a fundamentally and scrupulously manner.

Step by step, the authors of the book gathered the information about the everyday culture of mankind, analyzed and presented it in the publication in chronological order as an integral part of the history of mankind, which, as a rule, historians shyly conceal. And absolutely in vain! Widely known aphorism, which is attributed to an unknown plumber: "Civilization begins with the sewerage..." The secret of the vitality of this aphorism lies in the fact that under the mask of humor in it there is a profound sense. But this axiom is necessary for many, even today, to prove. The authors of "World (Toilet) History" illustrate, by the way of example, that one of the main features that indicate the level of civilization development is hygiene in general and the toilet in particular. They substantiate the interconnection between culture and place of origin. The book is a kind of encyclopedia of the household culture of mankind. It is written in plain, understandable language and is intended for the widest reader audience.

Book autographed by the authors are available in gift shop at the Museum of Toilet History.

 

Wall Calendar 2019

In the wall calendar 2019 of the Museum of the Toilet History presents reproductions of the famous world craftsmen on the women's toilets theme such as:

Volodymyr Slepchenko, Edgar Degas, Gustave Caillebotte, Théodore Chassériau, Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, François Eisen, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean Alfons Rehn, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Louis-Léopold Boilly, Alfred Émile Léopold Stevens.

At all times, women have inspired the creators to create masterpieces. A woman in the toilet is a sacred ritual, whose essence is incomprehensible for men, and therefore inspires even more to create unique pictures.

The finest nuances of feminine, sometimes nude, beauty spread out in pastels, then gradually enriched with other shades and transitions, adding vivid colors that emphasize the beauty of every aspect of the female body.

The calendar can be purchased at the Museum of Toilet History.
