More Luciana Recipe Art

Earlier this month we saw some really fab cookie art from the mysteriously named "Luciana" (click HERE for it!), and now this artist is back in yet another McCall's recipe booklet, and the art is just as super stunning and cute as ever!! From the same mid 70's booklet set in fact as our other post, these art highlights can be found on the pages of Index & Recipe Reminder, which is a complete guide to all 18 books from this highly recommended set! Enjoy --and yes I blew up the little girl images 300% because in the book they're pretty teeny!

Super cute! I love them all but I really like that little girl above the measuring cups. They're all super cute though.

I'd love to get my hands on the rest of these

I love the slinky yellow cat on the contents page best.

The name "Luciana" is quite uncommon. I was intrigued and did a little search. It is just a guess, but she may be Luciana Amelotti Roselli

, ex-wife of the italian journalist Auro Roselli.

She had an american career as illustrator and designer. Noticeable works for children books are "Pinkety Pinkety... a practical guide to wishing", "The Polka dot child", "Princesses' tresses" (1963) and (in Italy) "Voglio una mela blu" Unfortunately, I haven't found many samples of her art:

Just my guess.
