Just for Men

Milady’s For Men Only
Styling and Techniques
Cotter
1994

I honestly couldn’t post this one fast enough!  Just when you think no one can top any of the fashion and hair things, in comes an unamed library in Ohio with one of the best books yet.  Thanks submitter.  Here are some others you will not want to miss.

Aren’t Bobbie and Tom sweet looking?  Sometimes things are so perfectly awful, words just can’t do this justice.

Cat Cooking?

The Secret of Cooking for Cats
Gardner
1965

When I first looked at this title I thought that it was about cooking the actual cat.  No folks, treat your little fluffy friend right and cook him his very own dinner.  No cheap Frisky’s or IAMS for our feline friends.  Time to go first class!  Perhaps some Tuna Tartare?

Yes, kids, there is our author and his groovy manual typewriter, sharing a meal with his feline friends (see image below).  Wanna bet this guy is single and available?

After crafts, how about a few songs?

Music Activities for retarded children
a handbook for teachers and parents
Ginglend
1965

Another ALB spy sent this lovely book to us.  Think of it as a companion title to the crafts book!  Thankfully, it has been weeded from the collection.  Last time I checked WorldCat, this book was in university collections and a few large public libraries, which is probably appropriate for this title.  I also must confess it took me quite a while to realize that is some kind of bird on the cover.
