Colour me dutiful / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. Colour me dutiful. 1986. 28 pages. (6 3/4 x 4 3/4″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: Why do women wear make-up? How does it make them feel? Make-up stories are rubber-stamped in pink, turquoise, black and red to imitate eye-brows, eye-shadow, lipstick and blush. The handmade paper pages fit in an oval box with a cast-paper face on top. The face is mine: my friend Sandy Berninger cast my face, my breasts (see Breasts, above) and my feet (see High Heels below) while I was at Wayne State University.
