Easter Puck, 1909

Entitled: "Easter Puck". Chromolithograph shows Psyche, wearing an Easter bonnet, admiring her reflection in a small pool of water, with irises and lilies." 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. Psyche is the name of a female in Greek mythology, often associated with Cupid. An Easter bonnet is a type of hat that women and girls wear to Easter services, and in the Easter parade following it. Ladies purchased new and elaborate designs for particular church services, and in the case of Easter, taking the opportunity of the end of Lent to buy luxury items. Now, in a more casual society, Easter Bonnets are becoming harder to find, as fewer and fewer women bother with the tradition. Illustrated by Gordon Grant for Puck and published by Keppler & Schwarzmann, April 7, 1909.
