The covers of the early issues of the upscale Coronet Magazine were usually reproductions of a painting by one of the Masters or a well known artist. This November 1938 issue features a portrait titled: Lilya by Eugene Speicher.
Each publication offers a beautiful inclusion of artistic Black & White Photography as well as color. This publication's photography section includes human interest and artistic black and white photos and colored photographs of Renaissance Jewelry.
Among the fiction stories, political articles, cartoons, real life and factual stories etc... is a special section featuring paintings by children within an article titled; "Paint your Bogey Man." The article discusses the importance of children being able to express their fears through their art.
Another intriguing human interest story features Josephine Roche who was a Colorado humanitarian, industrialist, activist, and politician. She was also the first policewoman in Colorado and the first woman to run a major coal company. Though defeated, she ran for governor of Colorado in 1934.
The magazine is in clean, very Good Condition, with the 178 pages intact. The issue has light wear at the edges and corners of the cover.
**A BRIEF HISTORY OF CORONET: Published monthly from November 1936 until 1971, this upscale magazine leaned towards an audience that enjoyed the Arts. The magazine had a very similar layout to the Reader's Digest that was founded in 1922 and is very similar in size but targeted the more educated and generally wealthier audience. Most, if not all, of the issues offered a "Gallery of Art & Photographs" that were from around the world and also offered human interest stories about the lives of different artists. Each publication included Short Stories, Poetry, Political and Economic Writings, bits of History, Medical Advice...well just about something for every adult or young adult reader.
