Diary Secrets #30 - Matt Baker cover & reprints

Matt Baker
Diary Secrets v1 #30, 1955 - Filling the cover design, a pretty blonde looms large over her multiple suitors. Compared to his early romance works, Matt Baker sometimes used more conceptual thinking in his covers. The gorgeous example suggests the girl's predominance in the boys' minds, while maintaining her appeal and femininity. The corsage adds a splash of color in an otherwise muted palette. Inside are three Baker reprints: "I Couldn't Give Up My Secret Love" from Teen-age Romances #4 and "Love Is Born" and "My One Little Mistake" from Teen-age Romances #5. This is number 21 of 21 Diary Secrets issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Diary Secrets issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
