Syd Miller's Dracula

Smith's Weekly, 22 August, 1931
Over at the Trove site the legendary newspaper Smith's Weekly has just been uploaded after being digitalised. This should be a massive deal for anyone doing any form of research in Australia for the years the tabloid existed - 1919 to 1950. I know that, for me at least, this is huge. At it's best, Smith's Weekly was untouchable, at it's worst it was still essential reading.

Even better than the words was the artwork they used. Artist such as Syd Miller, Stan Cross, Jim and Dan Russell, Mollie Horseman, Joe Jonsson, Emile Mercer, Eric Jolliffe and many more all worked for Smiths. If you're keen on seeing some of the best art of the era, go and browse the title and check out the amazing art.

Such as the utterly amazing image of Bela Lugosi as Dracula by the incredible Syd Miller. As you can see, it didn't get much better than this.
