The Pope's Fight Against Time- 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! 

Wow! What a phenomenal illustration of a striking 1940s couple by Jaro Fabry. Designed for the March 30th copy of the publication 62-years ago, it appears that this duo is somberly confronting the reality that is "The Pope's Fight Against Time"...Oh No! After 20+ prolific years as a brilliant graphic artist, Fabry is best remembered for his illustrations inspired by the "Golden Age of Hollywood". We certainly have to agree there!

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.
