    AJN On the Cover


    On our cover this month is a lithograph titled A Map of the Open Country of a Woman's Heart. First printed in the 1830s by the D.W. Kellogg firm of Hartford, Connecticut, it was issued as one of a pair, accompanied by A Map of the Fortified Country of a Man's Heart. The artist responsible for the image claims to be “A Lady,” but it is just as likely that this “map” was created by a man. Although the illustration captures outdated 19th-century ideas about women, they're depicted with a layer of humor that wouldn't have been lost on its audience.
