This is a limited edition print. A total of 320 prints of this kind were produced. A set of 200 were numbered. Another set of 35 were A/P's numbered with Roman numerals. A set of 60 were unnumbered; another set of 25 were unnumbered and printed on Japon paper. All of the prints made were signed in pencil by Norman Rockwell.
This Post cover from the mid-1930s is typical of Rockwell's work of the period. Although America still faced economic depression, Post covers continued to feature romantic scenes and humorous vignettes. The magazine's masthead and lack of a detailed background in its covers, also, had remained virtually unchanged since 1902. Here, Rockwell uses small touches of red - the girl's lips, her thimble, the sewing kit -- to enliven this cover.
