February 28 is Floral Design Day

  After a long hiatus we return to celebrate Floral Design Day with our man Enoch taking fulsome advantage the theme. This rarely used over and nearly out of the top optical illusion was reserved for risqué pulps such as Gay Parisienne. So it’s a real surprise that Bolles’ most envelope pushing example appeared in Breezy Stories, a long-running periodical that specialized in demure romance stories about properly behaving young ladies. While this cover may have lowered their reputations, it no doubt raised the circulation of both the magazine and its readers.
