What a great find! You can see why my eyes immediately were drawn to this fun booklet from 1963 on yeast baking, as the colors just leaped out at me. Great design on the stylish gal, there, too. (My favorite part, of course.) I found this gem at a flea market several years ago, in Nashville, I believe. I've since seen another copy of it at another flea market or antique store not too long ago, and....hey, wait a sec -- yeast baking? What the heck? Well, it certainly doesn't sound very appealing, but the products that yeast baking produces look mighty appetizing, if you ask me. Even if they do have this odd, thick black line around the edges. What's up wit that?
I'm afraid to ask what "ego batter" is. And should ego go with batter in the first place? Must look into it.
"Oh, I'm all mixed-up! Isn't that crazy? I'm all mixed-up and have contorted my body in a way that is not humanly possible! All crazy, mixed-up me!"
Would you want to bake enough of something where they would eventually riot? Gotta think straight here. Or else, you'll find yourself drowning in a sea of fiesty breadrolls. Seriously.
No. Too easy.
Those crazy baking women and their silly gossiping! And their buns! Look at her! On that silly phone and not paying any attention to what she's doing! And again -- with the contorted pose. Girl, you're gonna throw your back out, if you don't watch it.
There you have it. Some fun scans for you all to enjoy. I seriously am digging the letterforms they used for this booklet. All the white letters used for each separate item looked hand-drawn, too, by the way. True testament to the great lettering skills that these guys had. Great stuff.
