About the Book

The Swinging Sixties are known for being an era of unmistakable femininity and groundbreaking chic. With this fun, retro title you too can acquire that elusive air of elegance that pervaded the decade.

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.
