Barbara Shermund's Wedding Plans

A 1940 cartoon by Barbara Shermund from Collier's inquires whether it's ever too soon to begin to plan a wedding. The gag shows us the sort of independent-minded woman that Shermund was so skilled at depicting. The original artwork was offered at Illustration House in 2008 but went unsold.

"I won't want it right away. I only met him yesterday."
