Reccomendation: Dr. Akócsi Katalin: Régi konyhák falvédői [Old Hungarian Kitchen Wall Hangings]. The volume presents 307 examples of kitchen wall hangings from the collection of Dr. Akócsi Katalin, with analysis by ethnographer Dr. Pilipkó Erzsébet and photos by Kövesdi Róka Lajos – published by the Csopak-Palóznaki Unified Calvinist Religious Community in 2019. Most of the folk kitchen wall hangings are hand embroidered, typically have text and a picture, and fall into 3 categories: (1) those depicting everyday household ideals; (2) those that illustrate themes from popular folky songs or historical events; and (3) those with religious texts and blessings. By S. dr. Lackovits Emőke, ethnographer.
