Original oversize poster for the issue of a June Cosmopolitan (no year on the poster). This would have been one of the images shown at a book stand to promote the upcoming or current issue of the magazine. Note the size. Crandell's depictions of beautiful women were the staple for Palmolive skin soap advertising campaigns during the early 1930's. However, it was his Cosmopolitan magazine covers that made Bradshaw Crandell a household name.

Crandall was one of the most famous "pretty girl artists" of his day. The astonishingly beautiful blonde is typical of Crandell's ability to merge romance, glamour and sex appeal.
