One of a really interesting collection of magazines I recently acquired. Edited and Printed by Inmates of Oregon State Penitentiary in the 1930s.

Shadows Magazine - A Monthly Magazine Dedicated to those who would salvage rather than destroy.

This issue is February 1938 and it includes articles, short stories, cartoons, poetry and more - including a section on "Con-temporary Humor - Cartoons and Humor from other pens". Great little illustrations throughout.

Fascinating period of time towards the end of the Great Depression, and before the war, when a lot of people were incarcerated for various reasons. The Oregon State Penitentiary is located Salem, Oregon to this day. Really interesting, and rather scarce look at life as an incarcerated citizen in the 1930s.

Also includes a lot of local Oregon advertisements from the time period.

Good vintage condition. Minor soiling on covers. Interior pages are lightly tan and in fine shape. 36 pages.
