Obscurity of the Day: Awful Week-Ends
One of her recurrent venues was the cover of Hearst's American Weekly newspaper magazine section, for which she produced several series from 1930 to 1942. This series, Awful Week-Ends, ran from January 23 to March 13 1938. There was also a book by the same name published in 1938 -- I don't know if these covers are the same material or different, I would guess the same.
I have her 'Awful Week-Ends-and Guests' book, and as you suggest, it's straight reprints of the artwork (but in black and white thus losing the vibrancy of the colours).
Really enjoy what you are doing here - keep up the good work !
