Fortune, October 1943 (Herbert Matter)

We don’t really have much to say about Fortune. This one is from the pre-Leo Lionni Era. But look at this cover! What a stunner. We’ve never seen ball bearings look so good and we’re grateful to Herbert Matter for this striking beauty. (Inside looks pretty interesting, too. There’s an article about manufacturing in China with some handsome photographs, nicely reproduced. We could’t find a credit, but they were very sharp.)
  • Size: 10.5 × 13 inches
  • Pages: 264
  • Condition: Interior fine. Spine bumped. Cover is missing a corner and someone has written something that looks like Dujs and then underlined it. We tried erasing it but had no luck. A quick googling reports that “DUJS” stands for Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science—which is interesting because we got this not too far from Hanover, New Hampshire. (That’s where Dartmouth is.)
