In what we hope will be an annual tradition, we're pleased to open the season on the Shorpy/Plan59 Holiday Print, made at Juniper Gallery in Fairfax, Virginia, from an original 1938 painting by noted Fortune magazine illustrator Antonio Petruccelli that we purchased at auction last fall in New York. The prints, struck on French art paper with archival inks, are very detailed and quite beautiful.
