"In point of embellishment, Miss Leslie's Magazine will continue to deserve the superiority which has already been awarded to it ... Hitherto the magazines of this country have presented a dull, unvarying round of pictorial illustrations ... We gave a sample in our first number, by furnishing a style of embellishment which, until we applied it, had not been dreamed of."--Publishers Table, February 1843.
Magazine featured series of magazine embellishment that capitalized on the latest innovations in graphic arts: colored mezzotint, lithotint, steel engravings using colored inks, embossed engravings, die-cut fashion plates layered one on top of the other and art of medal ruling.
