Lola Montez was the greatest show-off on earth. Born in 1818, she was famous for being rowdy, wicked and gorgeous. She travelled to all corners of the earth, seducing royalty, performing sexy dances and throwing tantrums. She drove men mad with a glimpse of her breasts and horsewhipped those who insulted her, including an Australian reporter.

In this smart and hilarious guide to beauty, first published in 1858, Lola Montez offers a bizarre series of hints on everything from make-up to hair disasters. And she has a word or two of indispensable advice for men who want to seduce women.

With her marvellous cartoons and introduction to Lola's life, Kaz Cooke has paid homage to the original Modern Girl. If you've ever wondered whether squeezing orange juice into your eyes will brighten them, or tried to charm a girl by peering down her cleavage, The Arts of Beauty is the book for you.

Kaz Cooke

Kaz Cooke is an Australian author, cartoonist and radio broadcaster.

Her background is in news and feature journalism in Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin. Her career began a month after she left school, in 1981, at The Age newspaper and since then she’s written for heaps of other major daily newspapers (The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and the Canberra Times) and magazines (including Who Weekly and the Women’s Weekly).

Since becoming a Mum in 1998 she has mainly worked from home writing books in her pyjamas; and still doesn’t know why there were books in her pyjamas (boom, boom). There have been some scuttling forays into radio shows with varying degrees of success (from “this is fun!” to “I’d rather eat my own shins with a fork”). Kaz illustrates her own work with cartoons, since 1983 often featuring Hermoine the Modern Girl.

She continues to write books with her trademark mix of meticulous research and trustworthy information untainted by commercial interests, and blended with her friendly tone, honesty, sharp wit, and pyjamas. Kaz lives in Melbourne with her family and enjoys toast.
