Monday: Covers from the Hall Collection

Gladys Bronwyn Stern said, “Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute.”  Nice cover, but I have no idea what the book’s about.

  1. She also said “One thing that’s good about procrastination is that you always have something planned for tomorrow.” Since I have spent the last several minutes searching for what this book is about, I have things planned for tomorrow that should have been done today.

    Debonair, by the way, is an Indian man’s nudey magazine.

  2. Just for an aside, seems likely the cover artist must have been cleaning his/her ears when looking for inspiration for that chic chick with the Q-tip head. This must have been the era when the term “necking” was coined. (I can’t tell if she’s oogling at me, or giving me the finger.)

  3. What are you, a painter or something? Very insightful. Don’t you use q-tips and very tiny brushes for your paintings?

  4. Ok, you got me. I Q-tipped in some oil paint in a few ‘broad’ areas…but mostly around the boobs and buns. The fine brushes are mostly for getting the..umm..hairs in proper place. :)

    By the way, I do need an excuse to paint a voluptuous nude…think one would look good by the lamp?

  5. Perhaps you could put it beside the painting of the unclothed, faerie-in-a-bubble surrounded by aliens? Can’t you just stick to the canned goods and barns that seemed to indicate you’d chosen a more respectable path? Even the “Hoppie Toad’s ’70’s Deco” oil hanging over my Telefunken console stereo is less controversial than the faerie painting. Or are you solely out to shock your poor mother?

  6. Good grief, Mr. Scripsi! (…if that is your REAL name.) I have no idea what you’re referring to with that ‘faerie-bubble’ painting reference. Sounds like you’ve been dipping in some hard apple cider or smoking something with celery in it. My goodness.

    Let us return to the proper subject: Q-tips. They happen to be on sale this week at Walgreens. Trouble is, no one can get out to buy any. Smooch that 70s art deco painting for me–and Mom has seen naked boobs before…duh.
