What better image to capture the feeling of the night before Christmas? I suddenly have the urge to dress for late dinner, make a pitcher of martinis, and walk Asta. I found boxes of these some thirty years ago while driving back to New York from Maine in a little roadside one-room store.
Hardly anything is still remembered about Delineator, one of the smartest most fashionable mags of that most fashionable era, and even less is remembered about Dynevor Rhys, the illustrator who painted this cover for the December 1931 issue. It's reassuring to know that most all of us won't be remembered in 75 years either. So, why worry? Walk Asta, hoist that martini while looking into Myrna's eyes, and here's to Dynevor Rhys, Delineator, and many more Christmas Eves to come!
