Members – Know of a good collector book not yet included in our Book Reviews?  Our Webmaster, as well as the editors of our Perfume Bottle Quarterly and the IPBA eNews are always looking for book reviews!

Fragrand and Fans book cover

The book is a rare spiral bound softcover. It is a superior reference to the use of fans in fragrance and beauty advertising and the firms that issued them. There are 36 pages of text and images. It is a comprehensive research on the history of perfume fans.  It catalogs known fans with images if available.

This work was privately printed by Evelyn Malpas in France in 1998.  Few copies exist on the market for the collector today.
