Grand Era

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!

I love this image. She has strength, beauty, and character - at home in any era. And the cover design is balanced and tasteful.
