About: Douglas Duer composed this illustration—in two colors, doubtless because of the magazine's economizing on expensive color printing costs—with an eye toward the relationship of text and image. The white space would have been filled with the story's text. Pictorial Review was a women's magazine covering fashion, homemaking, and domestic issues. In 1937 it absorbed the famous women's magazine The Delineator and published until 1939. Danger Calling is a story by British crime novelist Patricia Wentworth, featuring political machinations and international intrigue. Snakes play a prominet role in the melodrama.
