Robert Day: Treading Lightly

One might not necessarily expect to find an especially robust market for old magazine Christmas gift subscription forms, but the New Yorker at least had the good sense to illustrate such forms with gorgeous magazine covers from its archive. A subscription form offered and sold last year on eBay includes a Robert Day cover from 1935 illustrating a Christmas shopper who has good reason to tread lightly.
