Joy (joyoustmjp) | 29 comments My mom used to have a beauty book from the early 60s. I think it was mostly about hair, but there may have been a few chapters on other beauty concerns. The only thing I have left of the book is a copy of a page of a sketch I thought was funny. The very top of the page says "Problem Hair" (I don't know if it's the book title or chapter title) & gives the page number as 155. The sketch itself is of a woman sitting on top of layers of beauty products. From bottom to top, they are: 4 hair pins, 2 rows of curlers, a row of hair dye, a hairbrush, 2 more rows of curlers, a can of hair spray, & a home perm kit. The woman's hair is stuck out in every direction as if she's been electrocuted. A cherubim is before her, holding a hand mirror up for her to look into. The woman is looking towards the viewer with an exasperated expression. Below the sketch it says "Drawing by David Silverstein © Dell Publishing Co., Inc., 1963." That's all the information I have. I don't know the title of the book, nor the author's name. Anybody have this book?

On the book's Google Books page, if you search "David Silverstein" within the book, "Drawing by David Silverstein © Dell Publishing Co., Inc., 1963" pops up on page 155.
