We at Zelda are proud to have sponsors who promote all things jazz age, whether it be merchandise and fashion, items of historical value, performance, or non-profit institutions like the various Art Deco Societies or the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum. Always creative with marketing, and catering to the jazz age community, a lot of the ad art in Zelda is as much part of the magazine as the articles and interviews.

For example, “I Desire Vintage Posters” used this artwork to style it’s latest ad in Zelda. You can buy the original from their online shop, just scroll down and click on their button to right of this page!

That’s right! Zelda issue #13 is finally back from the printer and is available for purchase!

In this issue we conclude Jennifer Ann Redmond’s exploration of the world of animal actors of the silent cinema, re-discover the Straw Hat Riots of 1922, and appreciate what exotic fur represented to independent women. And our cover story for this issue is a review a classic 1935 Perry Mason film, “The Case of the Lucky Legs,” starring Warren William.

Spirits are big this season, and we mean booze! Bryn Esplin treats us with meszcal to “Tell Me Astoria,” and Kellfire Bray demystifies the world of absinthe.

Besides our features on recipes, advice, etiquette and all the latest jazz age styled events, we have an interview with the California Feetwarmers, an excerpt from the soon to be published book from Karie Bible and Mary Mallory, “Hollywood Celebrates the Holidays”and meet Miss Zelia Rose, a delight from Down Under.

Speaking of beauties of Australia, the city of Sydney has some wonderful history, and we take you on a tour of its deco art, jazz and nightlife!

FROM FARM TO FASHION: THE STORY OF FEEDSACK CLOTH! By Laura Windley

Due to a clerical error on the part of myself, as editor, the original article “From Farm to Fashion: The Story of Feedsack Cloth” by Laura Windley (read more of her work at Lindy Shopper) was left out of the print edition of Zelda Magazine Issue #12! This is not just unfortunate because of its omission, but because Ms. Windley’s article is terrifically informative and well written on a subject that has been too often ignored when discussing early 2oth Century lifestyle, fashion, and economics. She was asked to write about this specific subject, and it is a great benefit to readers of Zelda to be able to read it, so we will publish it here unedited on our “In This Issue Page” here:

“From Farm to Fashion: The Story of Feedsack Cloth” by Laura Windley

By mistake the article that was printed was from research that was accidently sent to our editor in place of Ms. Windley’s article. Very little has been written on the subject of fashion made from feedsacks, but the research that was printed, a fantastic blog piece by Judy Anne Breneman at “America’s Quilting History: Feed Sack Quilt History: Feedsacks, Frugal and Fun,” can be found here online:

http://www.womenfolk.com/quilting_history/feedsacks.htm

I hope that this post is not only an apology for the error, but also that it acts to inform readers about the value and quality of feedsack cloth and fashions, and that you will be inspired to discover more of the writing of Laura Windley and Judy Anne Breneman.

Sincerely,

Don at Zelda Magazine

Zelda Issue #12 is available now!

Zelda Magazine Issue 12 is now available to purchase online and in select outlets around the U.S.

Our cover story for this issue is the art of John Held Jr., one of the foremost illustrators of the Jazz Age. As a complement to this article we are showcasing the work of some of the artists who are keeping the style and illustration techniques of the Jazz Age alive and well today.

In addition to our regular columns on recipes and advice we welcome back Grace Gotham’s guide to etiquette and style, take you on a tour of Boston, show you how to make a great champagne cocktail, rediscover the almost-lost musicals of the Johnstone Brothers and introduce you to the animal actors of the Silent films.

We interview Dandy Wellington, vocalist and bandleader of his eponymous musical ensemble, and renowned for his sartorial ensembles. And speaking of sartorial, we’ve got the goods on the fashions of the past in articles about sack dresses and dating men’s fashions.

We interview beautiful burlesque artiste Musette Badeau, proprietor of the midwest’s Midnight Muse. And as usual, since a picture is worth a thousand words, we tempt and tantalize you with photos of events of the season.

Just lick on “Purchase Zelda” to get your copy of the newest issue and back issues as well!
