Collection of original art from Faith Burrows' FLAPPER FILOSOFY which ran from the 1920s through the early 1930s. Distributed by King Features Syndicate and the O'Dell Newspaper Service, each single-panel comic features a fashionable flapper with a humorous caption. Burrows' strip helped establish the flapper look in the popular imagination, a movement that marked the beginning of what we know think of as youth culture. Subjects include Prohibition, the stock market crash, smoking, Hollywood, and other timely themes. Burrows (1904-1997) was one of the earliest successful female comic strip artists in a business almost completely dominated by men, She later went on to pen another syndicated strip, "Ritzy Rosalie," for the King Syndicate. A strip with clear proto-feminist themes from a pioneering woman in her field.
