This is a folded sheet, printed on both sides, reprinted from the January 15, 1936 issue of Vogue magazine and reproducing the famous giclee color print from the magazine cover, the print showing a woman in profile with a gray suit and a stylish hat. 12.75 x 9.75 inches. The front cover bears the stamp of the Hotel Riviera del Pacifico of Ensenada, Mexico. While much of the building still remains it is no longer a hotel. The article by Hillis is a paean to Baja California as a tourist mecca. The article, at least by today´s standards, seems written in a style at once maudlin and patronizing. "An occasional Mexican hut... the happy-go-lucky town of Ensenada... there are plenty of servants to bring you drinks and books and carry messages." Marjorie Hillis [1889-1971] was an American author of popular nonfiction books for women in the 1930s. Perhaps her best known work is Live Alone and Like It, an advice book for young women on how to live independently. No soiling or tears. Near Fine condition.
