Make Up Book for Professionals-1

Make Up Book for Professionals by F.W. Nack, Chicago, c.1900
This is a complete facsimile of F.W. Nack’s Make Up Book for Professionals, a copyright expired lithographic pamphlet on stage makeup from around 1900. It shows clear diagrams of the common types of theatre makeup used for portraying popular characters and types on the American stage at that time. These diagrams are not only interesting for the study of the history of stage makeup, but also for the study of various stereotypes of race, gender and age prevalent in stage works of the time.
