Ad's '59

Apologies for the delays between posts lately, (as well as replying to the handful of emails I've received), I've been very distracted with other things, but hope to get back on track this summer. So, here's a handful of fun Woman's Day magazine ads from 1959 --well, they're all fun except for the one featuring screaming, scalding pain! More on the way at regular intervals-- I promise! :)

More Luciana Recipe Art

Earlier this month we saw some really fab cookie art from the mysteriously named "Luciana" (click HERE for it!), and now this artist is back in yet another McCall's recipe booklet, and the art is just as super stunning and cute as ever!! From the same mid 70's booklet set in fact as our other post, these art highlights can be found on the pages of Index & Recipe Reminder, which is a complete guide to all 18 books from this highly recommended set! Enjoy --and yes I blew up the little girl images 300% because in the book they're pretty teeny!

Best of Indoor Picture-Taking '74

Photographic highlights from a 200+ page, square bound Kodak Photo Book from 1974, featuring hilarious little kids and sexy 70's babes doing what they do best-- LOOKING GOOD! The rest of the book is mostly just quick tips on how to take a good pic, choosing film, flash use, etc.
