This fall themed, rural Americana cheesecake pin up illustration graced the September 1957 page of Bill Randall's wildly popular "Randall's Date Book" 12 page calendar series. For his "Date Book" commissions, Randall played off the success of the Brown & Bigelow Calendar company's yearly Artist Sketch Pad pin up calendar, while adding his own charm and whimsy. With a rhyming quip that reads "Nikki's cute in playsuits, or in a skirt and sweater. But, shucks--As far as I'm concerned, the less she wears, the better!" Inspired by the classic pin up photograph of Jane Russell in the Howard Hughes film "The Outlaw," Randall shows off a curvaceous farmer's daughter hiding in a hayloft during the late summer harvest. Handsomely framed and silk matted behind glass with a printed calendar page of the image included in sale.
