We’ll Find the Place: July 20

  1. These last few covers (3 at least) are fun from a printing history perspective Full-color was enormously expensive, so they often went with the cheaper 2-color option. (Red and blue here, black and cyan on the two before that). A quick glance back at previous posts indicates that the Improvement Era went to full 4-color covers while the Instructor and the RS Mag stayed with the budget 2-color jobs.

    I like this cover alot. Patriotic colors, pioneer-themed art. Perfect for a July issue

  2. Fun that you noticed that, Clark. These covers remind me, too, that etchings and engravings were a wildly popular form of art early in the 20th century, although we tend to overlook them now because of their black-and-white “plainness.”
