Hearst's American Weekly Cover Index -- Part IV -- 1926 to 1930




My index gets spottier toward the end of the decade. Still better than the early 1930s, which will run here soon after we take a week off for regular Stripper's Guide posts.

In this period, Henry Clive becomes a major contributor of pin-up covers and the fabulous Britisher Fish arrives. This period also sees a trend toward occasional wacky pseudo-science covers. This period was the heyday for Nell Brinkley and G.E. Studdy, both of whom would tail off considerably after these years.

Some notes on the listings:

* when you see a "#", that means that the cover is part of a numbered series and the number is given on the cover. Sometimes I remembered to write that down, sometimes I didn't so its catch-as-catch-can. If a series cover explicitly states that it is the first or final installment and its not obvious from the surrounding dates, I sometimes note that as "(start)" or "(end)".
* when I say "(story illo) that means that the cover is illustrating a text story in the magazine.
* I don't make guesses about covers I haven't seen. Therefore, even if I have one missing issue between installment 2 and 4 of a series, I resist the urge to assume what may be obvious.
* When a cover is descibed as, say, "Famous Fishes (Herring)", that means that the cover is part of a series titled Famous Fishes, and this particular cover depicts the herring.
