From the Department of Self-promotion:
Beginning today and on each Sunday leading up to the April 19th publication of Peter Arno’s biography, I’ll post something Arno-related I picked up during these past fifteen years of research and writing. First up, as you can see, is this wonderful cover for the 1939 Yale Junior Prom. Arno attended Yale for just one year, from the Fall of 1922 through the Spring of 1923, before heading home to Manhattan.
