Wow! This one is really a humdinger. Lovely art. I wonder who the artist was?
I looked at my copy and the cover artist is credited as Lecian V. Bernuth. The painting is titled "His Christmas Mail".I read the "The Gift" by Max Brand several years ago at Christmas and remember it as a fine holiday story. There are 4 other stories in the issue dealing with Christmas including one called "When Santa Claus Was Forgiven". I think I'll read it.
Simply beautiful ^^
I can't figure out what he's doing. Little help!
Cap'n, it looks like he is opening up his Christmas mail and looking at a pair of socks he received. But the sock looks too small.In the background is postal employee with a sack of US mail. A sight we will being seeing less and less of in the future.
Thanks, Walker. I never would have guessed socks.
