The Appetizer Art of Lou Peters

I'm thankful for many things in my life, and one of them is the amazing art of Lou Peters which graces quite a few pages from Good Housekeepings excellent series of 50's cook books (click HERE for more examples in the AEET archives after you devour this post!) With today's post we get a titanic tray load of awesome appetizer illos: dips and dunks, stick 'n picks, hot and bubblies, spreads, and more! So come on, don't be a bore, break out the fancy dresses and accordions, yank those striped black socks all the way up to your knobby kneecaps, and prepare for a day of chowing down irresponsibly! Happy Thanksgiving, one and all :)

Pickup

Mini-Monday returns to AEET with a tiny comic strip that I found in a Dell paperback from 1962 (and scanned at 400%) called "Nervous in the Service"; edited by Bill Yates. The book itself is a collection of "America's leading jokesters taking a look at our servicemen on land, on the sea, in the air, and far out in space", and this cute martian maiden strip illustrated by O'Brien --simply titled "Pickup" --is definitely the highlight of the collection.

"Hi There, Sex Fans!"

A nice 'n naughty selection of one-panel gags from "The Age of Hilarious" paperback edited by Phil Hirsch and published by Pyramid in 1971, aka the Age of Aquarius. Enjoy!

The Lively Life

Time for another 60's barguide from Southern Comfort. Packed with great illustrations and playful photography, I can totally think of a better way to stay warm this winter than by boozin' it up (try go-go dancing!), --but for those of you with "the thirst", I'm sure you'll enjoy the recipes just as well. Longtime followers of this blog already know this, but if you want to see a half dozen more home bartender guides just like this one that I've posted over the years, then click HERE! (Apologies for the wavy, water-logged scans-- pretty sure someone spilled a drink on this copy years ago.)
