I think she wants him to pay attention to her. She must be thinking of better things to do than reading an old book.

This illustration was done by¬†J Frederick Smith (1917-2006). He used to do a ton of pin-up illustrations back in the 40’s and 50’s for Esquire and more family friendly art and covers for Esquire’s sister magazine, Coronet, among other things. He sure knew how to draw some pretty glamourous girls, but he didn’t stay in the illustration field. J. Frederick Smith turned almost exclusively to photography in the 1960s.
