This vibrant painting of a cinematographer filming atop an active volcano is one of Popular Science’s most iconic vintage covers. Edgar F. Wittmack, who painted most of the magazine’s covers during The Great Depression, shows the intrepid filmmaker in a full-body metal suit shaped like a bullet. Reference photos of the protective gear shown in the accompanying article make it clear that Wittmack took some amount of artistic license; the real-world armor manages to look both more uncomfortable and more ridiculous.
