A beautiful record of America's jazz age, "Jazz Age Beauties" celebrates the original Ziegfeld Follies girls with gorgeous portraits and publicity stills by photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston - a "star maker" of the 1920s and '30s. With more than 100 beautiful vintage photographs of Broadway starlets and silent film actresses, "Jazz Age Beauties" is an evocative and nostalgic ode to a glamorous era of America's history. It is also an important and interesting document of one of America's first star makers, Alfred Cheney Johnston, who is credited with inventing America's celebrity culture and creating the image of the all-American "It" girl. Beginning with the era of the Gibson Girl in the 1890s and proceeding to the era of the Ziegfeld Girl the book contains anecdotes, bios and memorabilia such as advertising photographs for lingerie, perfume, furs, hats and make-up that define the glamour and society of the age.
