The Land of Mist

Cover of the July 1925 edition of The Strand Magazine - the first instalment of Arthur Conan Doyle's novella The Land of Mist, 'starring' Professor Challenger. The magazine still tended to use a uniform template for its covers at this point, so departures like this really stand out. The girl's outfit is so much of its time - her scarf's design looks like its been inspired by Clarice Cliff pottery.
