Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

A Real Kitchen Economist


The double-fold, six-panel leaflet features red and black title text on the front panel that reads A Real Kitchen Economist. Beneath the title is a black and white drawing of a woman stirring a pot on a stove. A band of red leaf design appears across the top and bottom of the panel. The red leaf design is repeated on the back panel, with promotional text in between the bands. Seven paragraphs are included, each one beginning with a letter from the word, monarch. Once unfolded, the three-panel centerpiece is headlined The Patented Duplex Draft Always Assures Perfect Baking Results In The Over Of The Monarch (Malleable). A red and black drawing of the oven's workings is included. The final panel features a black and white drawing of a Monarch (Malleable) Coal-Wood Range. Inside panels include the red leaf decorative design as well.
