At least ten years ago, I hit the jackpot at a very old used book store, tucked away in a back alley of suburban Chicago. There I found about 30 or so old Gourmet magazine covers from the 1940’s. As you can see, they are works of art. The illustrator was Henry Stahlhut, and it appears his drawings graced the covers for many years.
I wanted to do something with them, but for whatever reason, they got put away in a box in my closet for future use. As I was looking for something else, I came across them again. Well, now is the time. I am not going to tuck them away again. They are just too beautiful to waste.
So here is where you all come in – please give me some ideas of what to do with them! Obviously framing, but should I do them one by one, or as a collection in several frames? I am not much of a crafty person, so someone out there probably has an idea I never thought of. You can comment here, send me an email at [email protected] – whatever you feel like doing – but help me decide what to do with these works of art! Aren’t they amazing?!
