Object Name Poster
Description Cardboard backed color poster of the February 5, 1949 Saturday Evening Post Cover featuring the illustration Meeting the Date by John Falter. The illustration depicts a man in a grey overcoat shaking the hand of a man in a brown vest and pants, seated in an armchair in a living room. His newspaper is spilling to the floor and he is smoking a pipe. Beside the standing man is a woman in a white shirt and red skirt. Behind the couple stands an older woman in a blue dress. A boy is lying on the floor and is messing with a mousetrap on the lower right, in front of an old woman sitting in an armchair with a dog resting his paw on her leg. Two rooms are off the living room with people visible reading books or playing the drums. On the lower left corner is the artist's printed signature. At the top of the poster is the title of the magazine, date, price, and a listing of articles contained in the magazine. Two metal rings have been punched into the poster on the top left and top right corners. Falter's address and name have been stamped on the back side.
