The covers feature the art of over 80 named illustrators, chiefly American artists. Often fanciful, the images provide colourful illustration of Art Nouveau and Art Deco design in the period, primarily in women’s clothing, and include the work of prominent magazine illustrators Helen Dryden, Erté, Anne Harriet Fish, C. Coles Phillips and George Wolfe Plank. The techniques used to create the cover designs were predominantly drawing and painting, although two 1913 covers for the magazine Dress and Vanity fair are illustrated with uncredited photographs. Advertisements for automobiles, cosmetics, clothing and household products appear on verso of the covers. Some files include duplicate items or the same cover image from different editions of a magazine.
