Baker & Taylor
A chronicle of the career of the father of modern make-up

Book News
If you don't mind slogging through a distinctly romantic, promotional account of Max Factor's life and his singular importance to Hollywood, then this book could prove interesting. The abundant photos (color and b&w) of silver screen goddesses posing with Factor's products are amusing. The text includes insights into changing make-up fashions (Factor pioneered "bee-stung" lips, by the way), movie star anecdotes, and handy beauty tips for today's woman. No bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
