Vintage Redbook Covers

Last semester, when I wasn't doing homework, I was interning at Redbook magazine (hence, the halt in blogging).

Redbook, first published in 1903, was full of new short fiction and interviews with famous actresses, so became the magazine of choice for urbane, sophisticated women at the turn of the century. Even though Redbook has changed a lot since its beginnings, their office still remembers the glamour of the early days. I snuck into one of the copy rooms on my last day and took (admittedly low-quality) photos of blown-up covers with my iPhone. Here are my favorites.

The Mermaid and the Centaur sounds a bit strange, doesn't it? Like a tawdry interspecies romance. Just saying.

The dog is a nice touch, I think.
