Easter Puck, 1901

Entitled: "Easter Puck". Chromolithograph shows Puck wearing the bright red outfit of a musketeer, walking between two rabbits who are each carrying an Easter egg; a tonsured monk, reading a book, occupies the foreground." Puck was America's first successful humor magazine of colorful cartoons, caricatures and political satire of the issues of the day. It was published from 1871 until 1918. It was the first magazine to carry illustrated advertising and the first to successfully adopt full-color lithography printing for a weekly publication. In English folklore, Puck is a mischievous nature sprite, demon, or fairy. The Easter Bunny is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behavior at the start of the season of Eastertide. The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children. Illustrated by Louis M. Glackens for Puck and published by Keppler & Schwarzmann, April 6, 1901.
