Aren’t these fashion sketches just the bees knees? Is bees knees even a proper phrase for the time period these were drawn in? Did Luke and Lorelai end up together? Who knows.

What I do know is that these drawings were drawn bu Edyth Sparag during the late 1930’s and into the 1950’s and they gives us a great glimpse into popular looks for women during this time period.

Somehow we think Tina Belcher would approve of this cover. The subtitle is a thing of beauty: “How to Bathe, When to Bathe, When not to Bathe, etc.”
An awesome, not yet cataloged new acquisition!
