Free Images from Romance magazine 1:12 & 1:48
About thirty years ago, I was at a book sale and under one of the tables were a few boxes with True Romance and other romance magazines from the late 30's and 40's for 25 cents each. I was so thrilled, the images are so soft and beautiful. I was also always impressed with the dramatic black and white images inside the magazines. This magazine was one of the reasons I started collecting vintage magazines and books.
The cover has always been one of my favorites, isn't she gorgeous, the artist was A. McCowen. I thought they would be great images for February with a very romantic look in here eye. I reproduced this cover in one inch and quarter inch scales, with two pages from inside. It is from March 1938. Just right click and file save, the images should be printed at 100 dpi to keep them to scale for your miniature scene, or you can just lick on the images so they open in a new window and print them out, hopefully they will be to scale for you.
