Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
“In my constant field of vision, are a series of framed vintage Vanity Fair magazine covers from 1933 that powerfully illustrate that most tumultuous year, a year that would have far reaching global consequences. and offer a somber forewarning to our own troubled times. Many are illustrated by Italian artist Paolo Garretto arguably one of the great European illustrators of his time, his graphic covers expose the unsettling climate of the 1930’s including Hitler’s rise to power.”
I included the picture of one cover, but you’ll have to visit her blog to see the others. I promise it’s worth the click. I don’t know much about Mz. Edelstein except I find her play on the aesthetics of the 20th century absolutely enthralling.
Also worth a look at this week is an article by George Packer in the New Yorker: HILLARY CLINTON AND THE POPULIST REVOLT.
Have a nice Monday!
