Gentry: number eight, Fall 1953

New York: Reporter Publications, 1953. 120p. including covers, 9x12 inches, art, photos, ads, fiction, fashion, features, tipped-in illustrations and fashion layouts with tipped-in fabric samples, magazine in lightly-worn pictorial wraps with tipped-on color painting of a thoroughbred horse by Ben Marshall (usually missing from this issue).

They don't make them like this anymore. Tipped-in photos of artworks (including two Orozco paintings and the cover painting which is usually missing - this is worn but intact) fold-out plates of Modigliani's works, a fashion layout of drawn suits with samples of the fabrics tipped-in next to the images. The Orozco essay is ten pages long and heavily-illustrated with representative works. A short story by John Collier, "De Mortuis" and a piece by Lafcadio Hearn. Classy!
