WOMAN'S HOME COMPANION Magazine Profile

WOMAN'S HOME COMPANION began publishing in 1883, and lasted into the third quarter of the twentieth century. At one point its claimed circulation was four million, and dozens of famous authors wrote fiction and fact articles for the magazine. Over the years it changed format from "standard" 7" x 10" to various quarto and bedsheet sizes, and during this time its covers included a variety of styles and techniques by some of the best artists working in magazine illustration. (See our overall Artist List for an attribution and description of this magazine's covers, including many we don't yet have up on the website.)
