A brochure is a small booklet that’s designed to promote a place or pretty much anything. Size varies, but a brochure is always small with a dozen or so pages. But brochure is a French word for something that’s been stitched together. That’s how the first brochures were assembled. But you should also think about brochures the next time you wear a brooch. This spelling for this clothing ornament had always been broach. A broach was a pointed tool used to open crates. Both broaches point to pins of some sort, which are obviously linked to sewing. Today broach means to discuss something for the first time.
