Truly nutty ideas never die. They just lie in wait to come back when you least expect it. Exactly twenty years ago, those two wacky books of nasal disguises, Nose Masks I and Nose Masks II, appeared and America seemed to inhale them. There were nose mask parties, celebrities wearing nose masks, nose masks in parades. Today, like the Beetle, the yo-yo, and aviator shades, they''re back. Return of the Nose Masks is wackiness for a whole new generation of grown-ups, children, and grown-ups with an inner child. Created by the original nose mask auteur, Rick Meyerowitz, here are 150 original costumes for the nose. Printed in four-color and perforated, there is the Fat Cat, Cooool Cat, and Cocktail Cat. Lawrence and Lenore of Arabia. The Velvet Frog. Nefertootsie and the Tut Mask. The three freedoms--Freedom to Sing, Freedom to Dance, Freedom to Shop. Holiday nose masks, underwater nose masks, career noses masks, modern art nose masks. There are little square nose masks and big vertical nose masks. Mustache nose masks, nose ring nose masks, and the Big Tongue page. Even the Buddha, for that mood of spiritual longing. The nose masks come with instructions for any-size nose on any-age face. The fit is snug, and the look is just right. Ships in time for Halloween.

3. Place securely on nose.

About the Author

Rick Meyerowitz would like to use this space--usually reserved for important biographical information--to offer a bit of advice: "Nose Masks are for wearing. You are supposed to tear up this book. If for some reason you wish to keep it intact, buy two!

From Our Editors

Everything old is new again, and nose masks are back. Twenty years ago, everyone was sporting a nasal disguise, and Rick Meyerowitz figured it was time to create some new ones and re-introduce an old pastime. Return of the Nose Masks features 150 perforated, original masks printed in full-colour. This book is great for young ones and those who are young at heart.
