National Geographic 1960/12 Haddon Sundblom Santa Claus
[RARE]
$35.00

National Geographic Magazine from December 1960. Another great issue from the end of Geographic's golden era...articles on "Japan: The Exquisite Enigma", "Asia's Little Giant", "Central Park: New York's Big Outdoors", "The Last Thousand Years Before Christ", "The Long, Lonely Leap", and "Exploring an Epic Year". Splendidly illustrated and written issue, in VG condition. Insert map is absent. What makes this issue really special is the terrific Haddon Sundblom painting of Santa Claus on the back cover (for Coca-Cola), entitled "The Pause That Refreshes", with elves making the old man comfortable after a long hard day of delivering toys; pouring him a fizzly glass of his favorite beverage! Sundblom painted 28 such Christmas Coca-Cola paintings which were used in ads spanning 1933-1964. In Mr. Pop Top's opinion, commercial artist Haddon Sundblom had every bit as much to do with our current image of St. Nick as did the writings of Clement Clarke Moore ("An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas" - 1823) and Thomas Nast (with the first depictions of a "modern" Santa in a cartoon from 1862). Sundblom's warm, jolly, red-cheeked, portly Santa is a Christmas icon. Magazine dimensions 10" x 7". Only one in stock. Ho, Ho Ho!
