The May 1919 issue of Judge magazine featured a colorful and witty cover illustration depicting an Egyptian maiden so attractively made up that she has caught the attention of…a dead guy!  Or, maybe it’s that she’s topless. That’s usually an attention-grabber.

What type of magazine was Judge? Women’s or maybe like a Vanity Fair? Never heard of it. This art work is awesome. If I was a graphic designer I would totally be studying the 20 and 30’s of advertising.

It’s been a while since I looked through it, and it’s still in storage, but I think the content is more like Vanity Fair. I don’t think the cover art relates to any articles, so it’s intriguing to think what inspired the artist to draw that, and the editor to approve it.
