As I’ve done every New Year’s Eve for the past 15 years, I’ll wish all Lines and Colors readers a Happy New Year with another of J.C. Leyendecker’s terrific New Year’s Baby covers for the Saturday Evening Post.
Equipped with a pickaxe and shiny lunchpail, our 1921 Leyendecker baby seems ready to get to work in the new year. Let’s hope that’s the case for the rest of us in 2021.
See my 2006 post for background on the origin of the Leyendecker New Years baby covers for the Saturday Evening Post.
No matter what else happens, I wish you all a new year filled with beautiful, inspiring art!
