The Whole Year Through: The Juvenile Instructor, 1915

By: Ardis E. Parshall - November 23, 2009


.
1915 was the first year the Juvenile Instructor used full-color covers. These images were purchased from an art supply house; most, but not all, are marked with the turn-of-the-century copyright of the “O. Co.” of New York City, and a few bear the names of artists.

  1. I love seeing the old artwork. Thanks for posting them Arids. (I think I have antique kids, because several of these shots could be my kids.)

  2. It’s a good thing that the snake in the grass isn’t real…

    Charming artwork.

  3. I picture some of these framed and hung on walls. They are delightful.

  4. Beautiful illustrations! It makes me think the artist might have been a Utah Norman Rockwell. It is of interest that the Vermont Rockwell had his first Saturday Evening Post cover published in 1916. It is said Rockwell depicted the “Common Man.”The Instructor covers might be said to depict the common “Mormon Kid.”
