"Marsha takes the words of many women from many sources and assembles them into the words of EVERYWOMAN." -BJ Gallagher, author of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Other Women
Marsha Karzmer "writes" with scissors. As an author and creatrix, she reads magazines and newspapers with different eyes, looking for the hidden message in the headlines. The result of her quirky clips is sheer magic. Pleasing to the eye and the mind, Karzmer's message reads loud and clear-- there is no "age before beauty." Real beauty comes from being true to your own unique self and knowing who that is.

From exhilarating exhortations such as "It's never too late to treat yourself right" to the poignantly pithy "I was born wrinkled and I will die wrinkled but I like ME," each page of quippy clips is colorful and delightfully designed, making this the most artful gift book of the year. Marsha Karzmer's inspirational collages are a completely original way to speak to women. Fun and fresh, How Old Is Beautiful? is a gift book a woman will buy for herself and for every woman she knows!

* Karzmer's "cut and paste" collage writing is a reinvention of women's inspiration.

* Answers to life's questions, inspiration for life's problems-- all ripped from the pages of magazines and newspapers.
