Cover of The Delineator from Octorber 1929. “The smartest new fashions” and an illustration of a dog that doesn’t look well.
The Delineator was an American women’s magazine of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, founded by the Butterick Publishing Company in 1869 under the name The Metropolitan Monthly. Its name was changed in 1875. In November 1926, under the editorship of Mrs. William Brown Meloney, it absorbed The Designer, founded in 1887 and published by the Standard Fashion Company, a Butterick subsidiary.
