    THE ROGUES GALLERY from KRYOLAN - the world's leading professional company offering high-quality cosmetic, color and beauty cosmetics. The book consists of interesting illustrations (by Ben Jones) and photos (by Catherine Harbor). It's is filled with ideas for cartoon characters. In addition to the pictures and shots, there are lists of products needed to create individual looks. “Rogues' Gallery” is essentially a Met-size compendium of short biographies, including 19th century archaeological adventurer (and huckster) Luigi Palma di Cesnola and 20th century grandee Philippe de Montebello, whose exile in the wilds of Texas, where he headed the art-poor Houston Museum of Fine Arts before launching a year tenure at the helm of the Mighty Met, seems somehow biblical.
