coffee lust

I spent most of the day at work sorting and itemizing all the damaged and brittle serials in need of repair. My work area now looks like a duststorm passed through, scattered with dried brittle elastic bands and shards of paper and leather binding.

In amongst the battered and broken volumes I found a few gems, but my favourite was this issue of Cosmopolitan (February 1913); the woman on the cover is suffering serious coffee lust.


I know that feeling well. Mmmmm coffee... that's what I'm talking about.

And if classic cover art is your bag of beans, head over to the cover art gallery at the Ellis Parker Butler Reading Room; you can see more Cosmo covers at Miskatonic University Library.
