Pictorial Romances v1 #5, 1951 - A young woman finds shelter from a snowstorm, just as her friends arrive, worried for her safety. Matt Baker's cover cleverly inserts visual clues to enhance the scenario. A wine bottle and cups are suggestively romantic while the stonework on the floor hints at an unseen fireplace. Baker's only story inside is a reprint from the previous issue (Pictorial Romances #4). This is number 2 of 21 Pictorial Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Pictorial Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
