Penfield, Harper's October DFP 349, 1895

This original literary poster for Harper's October 1895 issue features a humorous scene of a hunter, absorbed in reading his magazine as two game rabbits watch him.


Artist Edward Penfield, Harper's art director, designed a poster each month between 1894 and 1899. He introduced the art poster to Americans after the French had popularized advertising posters as the "art of the people" in the streets of Paris.
