Miss Icarus

Today’s Cover.


An Art-Deco style cover of US magazine ‘The Alexander Aircrafter’ from November 1928, artist signed ‘Olsen’. The figurine, initially seeming to be a spirit or goddess, has wings held on by straps, implying a more human origin – in theory. I doubt the intent is she was to follow the original Icarus’ fate. Three diverse aircraft (a floatplane, a biplane and a monoplane) are discretely presented in the background above an American landscape.
