Emily Post

Dear DECORUM! Readers,

Please visit this great website: EmilyPost.com, home of the Emily Post Institute, which was founded by Emily Post in 1946 to continue her work in teaching etiquette (and many of the Institute’s  books and articles are still written by her lovely family members!).  You can’t go wrong following her guidelines!

Ladies: for more great manners scoop, check out this 1938 book Better Than Beauty: A Guide To Charm.  The writing in it is wonderfully articulate and strong, and though some of the scenarios discussed are dated or quaint, many of the examples and almost all of the principles remain the same today!
