Here is another beautiful example from the grand era, when editors honored the beautiful cover art they published by not slapping text blurbs all around it. The blurb along the bottom, advertising editorial content, adds just enough weight and balance to justify itself.
Not to mention that it was a time when women were being portrayed with a new balance, one of strength of character with cultivated femininity.
What a grand era! What a beautiful cover!

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
