Object Name Poster
Description Color offset lithograph on white paper. Poster featuring the August 23, 1952 Saturday Evening Post cover. The cover features the illustration "Home from Vacation" by John Falter. The illustration is of a family, a man, woman, girl and boy, returning to their home after a vacation. Their overpacked car is parked on the cement driveway to a white two-story home. Their green lawn is overgrown. Newspapers litter the stoop, lawn, and the blue roof. Two bottles of milk sit on the stoop against the front door. The family stands on the lawn looking at the house. The man, in a yellow shirt is holding two suitcases. The woman, in a pink dress, is holding clothes on clothes hangers and is standing by the open door of the car. The boy, in a striped shirt and jeans, is riding a tricycle through the grass. The girl, in a white shirt and blue shorts, is holding her suitcase and is waving to someone. The trunk of the dirty car is open. Behind the house a yellow house and white fence are visible. The sky is cloudy and dark. On the lower left corner of the cover is the artist's printed signature. At the top of the poster is the title of the magazine, date, and a sample of articles contained in the magazine.
