"A classic bit of Penfield humour…which depicts a woman and a March hare watching a copy of Harper's being blown away by a gust of wind" (Margolin p.31)

"One of the best of our native talents, Penfield is well-known for the decade 1891-1901, during which he was the art director of Harper's. For five of the ten years he produced posters for each month's issue of the then popular magazine. His drawings are deceptively simple, with flat colour and clear lines, but they always manage to convey class and refinement. And there's quite often a gentle touch of humour or irony, refreshing and frivolous. Penfield's posters are models of effective composition and economy of expression " (Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 555)
