Another Coffee Table book from Kristine Mitchell and Pearl S. DiMaggio, Arthena Deco: Being a Girl in the 1920's is an illustrated volume of paintings of transsexuals in the pre-Cowell/Jorgensen 1920's.

With a forward by Jennifer Brock and Introduction by Dame Suzie Heywood, this volume promises to be the talk at least of anyone who mistakenly uses it for a coaster, and perhaps some might even pick the damn thing up and look through it.



Some of the Illustrations include:
