  1. These are all really unique, beautiful covers of non-domesticated cats. The panther and leopard in #3 is a great action illustration. There’s another great Post cover in 1932 of a panther looking up at a green butterfly featuring his tail that almost looks like it’s moving.

    Seeing them all lit up like this is a real treat. I want to see how many are on art.com too! I actually have the Mountain Lion issue from 1937 that still looks new. It has the address label, but it’s very small and up at the top.
