Hi Mariana,

I found your blog and this post via a Google search. I'm a freelance photo researcher working with Chronicle Books, and this ad is one they'd like to use in an upcoming book.

Do you have any idea what the original source of the image is? I've had no luck finding it, and I'm hoping that perhaps either you might know, or, failing that, you could give me a high-resolution version of this image, and I'd take it from there.

Your sites are lovely--the section of the book I'm working on is Art Deco and early 20s and 30s illustration, and I've found quite a bit through your links, so thank you!

Thanks,
Kris Ashley

Hi Kris, thank you very much for your lovely compliments. I believe I found this image here, in the AllPosters site:

Hope that helps, and good luck with your book.
