Sarah Rich and Wendy MacNaughton happened upon a sketchbook at a book fair that turned out to be an unpublished 1945 manuscript by Cipe Pineles, the first female art director at Conde Nast. A Jewish immigrant from Eastern Europe, the manuscript was a hand-painted homage to her family’s good culture.
