Fleur Cowles is best remembered as the founder and editor of the gorgeous magazine named Flair, a publication so beautiful and unique that the cost of producing it drove it off the newstands. Flair remains popular today despite its short life. After the magzine was canceled Cowles created this hardcover annual with many of the same charming touches readers loved. Here we have big fold-outs, a cut-out front cover, and an exquisite little booklet bound-in titled "The Flower of Flowers" by none other than the celebrated author Katherine Ann Porter. Among the topics here are Walter Winchell,caligrapay, Valentines,. travel to London, artists and much more. Illustrated lavishly with both color art and black and white photographs. Book is oversized at 10"x13-1/3" and has 227 pages. Though not perfect, it's still clean and tightly bound. Faults are confined to a small tear to cloth at front spine which I successfully repaired (almost invisible). a bit of toning to exerior page edges and a few spots of darkening to isolated areas of gilt decoration.
