Get ready for the 16th issue of Zelda Magazine, with articles on a variety of subjects for you about Jazz Age lifestyle, arts and culture. We always enjoy featuring obscure and forgotten items of the early 20th Century, and in this issue we are happy to feature R. Scott Williams piece on writer Oscar Odd McIntyre, as well as our presentation on how American’s waistcoats were fashionably buttoned completely down. And for a little fun below the waist, Lauren Stowell gives us an in depth exploration of vintage footwear.
Speaking of Jazz Age Fashion, Faye Havoc explains how to jazz up your vintage lingerie, and John Coleman Darnell and Colleen Manassa Darnell give us the second half of their two part story of Art Deco Egyptomania.
From Paris, the delectable Sucre D’Orge tells Zelda how she came to burlesque and cabaret, and bandleader Glenn Crytzer discusses his work from Seattle to New York City. Seattle, by the way, is our city feature, and we hope that if you visit that great city, you will use Zelda as your guide.
We have our regular cocktail column from Professor Bryn Esplin, our insightful advice from Mr. Burton, our featured vintage recipe book, and our coverage of Jazz Age events from around the world.
Watch for more announcements, soon!
