SUMMARY- This was a fun read for me - but I love old advertisements and looking at the clothing styles of eras past. You get a full-page ad for "The Candle Institute" in Torrance, CA on the page facing the Table of Contents, with plenty of testimonials on how learning candle making changed these alumni's lives - it's a hoot. You don't get a date for the magazine, so I don't know the specific year, but it definitely dates back to the late 60's/very early 70's. There are full-page color photos(just a little out of focus) throughout, with a very wide variety of candles.
