Filed under: X-Rea: Irvin Type Watch   Tagged: , ,

Everybody loves Rea Irvin. It’s true. Liza Cowan, lucky enough to own two original Rea Irvin magazine covers at her shop, writes about Irvin at her blog. And if you haven’t read it yet, Emily’s article on Irvin is required reading for anyone interested in Irvinian Studies. You can minor in it here at Emdashes.
