This site is a tribute to Miss Mae West. It was created by Martin Kappinga (Netherlands) with the assistance of Ian Macnicol (Scotland).  Both are long time fans of Miss West's. They met through their mutual interest in her.  
Martin's motivation to create the site was his sadness that none of Miss West's films, made during the thirties, was shot in colour. He is an expert in restoring and colouring photographs and his original idea for the site was that, using a mix of original colour material and his own coloured images, it would serve as an on-line colourful scrapbook to share with other fans. Ian's input was to provide some of the source material and the text so that something of Miss West's life story would also be presented.  
Together, they had the idea that the site might also serve as a repository for fans to share their memories and memorabilia. A huge chunk of Tim Malachosky's collection can be seen on the exhibition page and thanks are due to him for allowing the use of the introductory text from his book, "Mae West" (Empire Publishing California 1993) on the site's Home Page.
