"All the Golden Things" Cropped Text

Below, please find a cropped version of the text of Jack Sher's story, "All the Golden Things," as it ran in the February 1947 issue of Good Housekeeping. This presentation of the text is meant to accommodate a quick reading, as an aid for engaging the actual printed spreads, which are graphically and rhetorically much more complex, and delightfully so. The full spreads are presented here, along with an abbreviated discussion of the component artifacts which contribute to our understanding of this enormously complicated cultural "text."
