Jell-O and the KEWPIES
Le Roy, NY: Genesee Pure Food Co., © 1915
First printing of this classic advertising booklet displaying Rose Cecil O’Neill’s belovedKewpies in color-printed, cherubic splendor. The introduction offers a portrait of O’Neill and a discussion of the famed cookbook authors who contributed desserts to this pamphlet (Marion Harland, Mrs. Lincoln, Mrs. Rorer, etc.); eight large color-printed Kewpie vignettes are featured, while additional smaller Kewpies are scattered throughout the text. A bonus color-printed leaflet on Jell-O Ice Cream Powder is attached.
B-A Note: I surprised myself to find that I had used the Jell-O tag before - I had forgotten about that one! People do collect the oddest things. Including me, of course.
