We mark winter’s imminent arrival with a cover illustration by Will Hammell for a January 1914 issue of Puck. In the illustration, a cluster of snow-buntings appears to gambol in the wind-blown snow, perhaps inviting the warmly bundled woman to join them in embracing the season. Also known as snowbirds or snowflakes, snow-buntings brave even Arctic climes as the northernmost known songbirds. We hope that winter’s approach finds you if not exactly frolicking, then at least cognizant that we’ve turned the solar corner as daylight hours gradually lengthen again. Season’s greetings!
