Jack R runs a blog dedicated to the great early 20th century illustrator Enoch Bolles. Here, he takes a look at a the November 2011 cover of Esquire, comparing it with this 1920's cover of Film Fun, with a Bolles illo. Do you think the Esquire photographer was inspired by the Bolles illo (or was inspired by someone else who was inspired by Bolles)? If so, neat! If not, it is interesting how both the illustrator and the photographer used a similar pose.
