"The 1890's were the heyday of small magazines, most of them slanting their stories and articles to attract woman readers. Pre-radio and television, many women had no recreation other than reading, and while classic books were educational requirements, contemporary magazines provided a glimpse of the current scene they couldn't obtain otherwise. Lippincott's, based in Philadelphia, was one such monthly" (Gold p.74)

"Lippincott's May, in which the effective juxtaposition of bright contrasting colours produces an effect of gaiety similar to that of a haphazard nosegay of country flowers… most of the designs for Lippincott's include a realistic representation of the magazine itself."
(Keay p.23)
