Fashionable Beauty

This cover is just a few months short of 100 years old.

All that negative space with no blurbs! Remarkable!

George Wolf Plank — Vogue — November 15, 1911

Looks good. A minor point though: according to the references I found it's Wolfe.

Gorgeous layout. A perioical I would be roud to pluck off the newstand.

No touting of "1001 ways to a free make-over at home using just cucumbers and peanut butter" or "50 reasons your husband is a jerk" yelling at me.

Love that era.

Anarchist—Hmm, and my source sez Wolf. Just one of those mysteries of life I guess.

Unca Jeffy—YES!!!

You just know that modern magazine art directors look at that negative space and get twitchy with the desire to blurb it to death...
