|The Princess Badour by Frank McIntosh, 1926|
As she steered the magazine through its first few years, the covers were modest. But by 1926, a 25-year-old illustrator named Frank McIntosh was on the scene, turning out striking Art Deco images in full color.
McIntosh, who grew up in Oregon and graduated from the California School of Fine Arts, brought Asia magazine to new heights in the next few years with his hauntingly beautiful covers.
I've included a few of them here, but there are even more over at Art.com. To see more of McIntosh's work at Art.com, click here.
I can't decide which one I like best. How about you?
