First published in 1964 this charming book provides a wealth of practical information on looking good. Hailing from a time when women were ladies and image was of the utmost importance‚ Beauty asserts that your face is your fortune‚ and your figure must complement it. This is a comprehensive blueprint for beauty at all ages and stages of life - the teenager‚ the career girl‚ the busy housewife and the older woman. The practical tips are as relevant now as they were in the '60s‚ and also provide a fun insight into an age when secretaries put on fresh lipstick to take dictation from their boss and anti-wrinkle creams were a major investment at thirty shillings.
Beauty is part of a series of Collins Nutshell Books which covered hobbies‚ sports‚ practical activities and leisure-time interests of many kinds. Originally produced in the '60s‚ Collins Nutshell Books‚ recall a bygone era which flourished on the knowledge that many interests make for a happy life and that leisure means much more than watching television.
