Be a walking work of art without damaging your delicate skin! Dorine vVan dDen Beukel's unusual how-to book, Traditional Mehndi Designs, details everything you need to know to create temporary henna tatoos, focusing on traditional designs from India, Africa, and the Middle East. Its three chapters (all tightly written light in verbiage and resplendent with full- color photography) --outline the history of Mehndhi, offer instructional techniques, and graphically document hundreds of designs that are carefully illustrated in black and white for you to copy onto yourself. One look at this gorgeous art book and you'll wonder why Mehndi didn't catch on during the 1960s. Head- to- toe paisley that washes off in the rain--now there's an concept that should tickle the fancy of the terminally hip. --P. Randall Cohan
