We Ain’t Misbehaving when we think back to the music of Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong.

They were entertainers sweeping people off their feet as they swayed to the soulful and intoxicating sounds of Hollywood during the Golden Age.

Every Tuesday, WomanScape features a few specially curated products on our site that give a nod to our weekly theme. We have curated these art-filled history books knowing they drive you to shop.

WomanScape Feature Books:

This week’s latest book suggestions revolve around the Director’s Chair:

For the book-lover historian in your life, here are few good books from this week to consider. They take you back in time providing insight into the life of Dorothy Arnzer, a trailblazing woman making movies when women were shut out of directing roles in America’s 1920’s and 1930’s.

If you’re still catching up on what you missed from last week, these New York Times bestselling books by Fiona Davis are perfect.

All three of Davis’ fictional stories take place at a historical New York City landmarks, with each providing unique and fascinating tales about women in history overcoming great obstacles.

Old Hollywood photographs:

Last week, our spotlight on women making history featured Helen Dryden, an illustrator made famous by her fantastical Vogue cover art. This Tuesday, we’re moving from Vogue covers and photographs of women who stepped in front of Hollywood cameras.

Consider adding a Director’s Chair to your She-Shed or a special place in your home. You can personalize it so no one else takes your seat and use it to reviews the prints below.
