Description
This is a cover page, and contains three illustration; one large center illustration and two smaller inset illustrations. The small illustration at the bottom left of the page shows a man and a woman looking at each other. She's wearing a 1930s style dress with a huge bow at the neck. Her left hand is on her left hip, and she's looking over her shoulder at the man, in a flirtatious manner. The man is wearing a light colored trench coat over his suit, and is holding his hat in his hands, looking over at the woman. The second small illustration has two men and a woman. The woman has her right hip/leg resting on a table/desk, holding out what appears to be a bracelet to the first man. She's wearing the same dress in all of the illustrations, and the bow appears to be part of something larger that goes around her waist. The first man is standing on the other side of the table/desk, looking down at the woman with his chin in his hand. He's wearing a suit and glasses. The second man appears to be the same man from the first illustration, with the trench coat and the hat, which is on his head in the picture. He's on the left side of the first man, but watching the woman. The large illustration appears to take place in a studio, with a large can light on a stand in the background. This is a crowded scene, with three women and two men. A woman in the foreground is seated in a caneback chair, with her back to the viewer, watching the others. She's just wearing a slip and stockings, and her left hand is partially raised, as if in surprise. The main characters are in the middle of the page, and it's the woman in the bow dress and the man in the trenchcoat. They're facing each other, and he's holding both of her hands with his, in an aggressive manner. He appears to be very angry, and she looks nervous. A man in a suit and glasses is to the side, trying to separate them. His left hand can be seen trying to get between them. A third woman is behind everyone, but only her face shows, and she appears worried.
