Cork, the environment, and history all come together in this captivating combination of factual storytelling and intriguing narrative, enlivened by a treasure-trove of imagery. House of Cork chronicles two primary themes. First is the story of cork itself, from the history and harvesting to its many diverse and surprising uses. Second is the chronicle of five generations of one family's cork business, founded in the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1855.
