Hello Babe- Collier's Weekly

Founded in 1888 by Irish immigrant Peter Collier, 'Collier's National Weekly' was a popular American publication that ran from April 28, 1888 to its final issue in January 4, 1957. Renowned as the first mass-circulation publication in the United States, 'Collier's' was the perfect melting pot of trending topics, investigative journalism and literature to properly represent a generation of group think.

With 'Collier's' commissioning prominent figures such as Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, J. D. Salinger, and John Steinbeck to aggregate both political discourse and literature to its pages- it's no wonder this publication was such a roaring success!

'Hello Babe' - this football is coming your way! What a timeless, whimsical sports-inspired graphic designed by American writer and illustrator Ellen Gilchrist for the November 9, 1940 copy of the publication. With Gilchrist originally known by the 'Collier's' family for her short stories, she made new waves in the early 40s when she officially joined the team as their Fall cover designer...needless to say the rest is history! 

If we know one thing for certain, it's that at only 5 cents a copy, 'Collier's' famed cover illustrations simply drip in vintage decorum! This fabulous 1940s magazine cover will frame beautifully in your home.
