Framingham, MA: Dennison Manufacturing Co., [1949-1953]. First Edition. 8vos. Fifty issues, each a single sheet folded in horizontal thirds, with subscription form laid in. Mild to moderate toning to all issues; light edgewear with occasional scuffing and minor tears. Very good or better overall. (Item ID: 23640)

Activity guide for teen girls of the early 1950s, with monthly suggestions on "Things to do / things to make / Fads / Good looks / FUN!" Published by Dennison Manufacturing, most issues promise reliable low-cost glamour via accessories and decorations crafted from Dennison Crepe: "Use crepe paper to make this adorable hat...Crepe paper! Who'd believe it?" Other Teen Topics include "Social Krymes" (showing off, knowing too much, correcting others), the "mighty peculiar" subject of "boyology," how to push a boy's "button of Expectation" to turn on the "Good Manners Lights," how to be a Man's Woman, and how to steal beauty inspiration from one's pet cat ("Puss is full of beauty tricks. I'll borrow some!") 'Judy' rounds out each issue with recipes, ideas for party games, and featured Hollywood star photos: Farley Granger, Montgomery Clift, Joseph Cotten, Tony Curtis, Mario Lanza, and many more. Scarce set of 50 non-consecutive issues (from Vol. 4 No. 1, January 1949, to Vol. 8 No. 1, January 1953) showing not only socializing of teen girls, but the development of a certain postwar idea of adolescence. An ephemeral production; OCLC locates just one holding, at Cornell.
