Dover Publications, 1997 - Art - 78 pages
This affordable treasury of rare advertising cuts will add period flair to any number of print projects. Selected from artwork that once decorated matchbook covers of the 1920s and '30s, over 900 copyright-free images comprise a remarkably rich source of immediately usable graphics.
From political themes to auto sales promotions, bold black-and-white illustrations publicize a wide range of products and services: restaurants, eating houses and lunch rooms, sporting events, ladies' apparel, beauty shops, food marts, taverns, nightclubs and cocktail lounges, baked goods, fresh candies, choice meats, fruits and vegetables, tourist cabins, motels, camps, and much more.
Eye-catching and nostalgic, often enhanced with slogans, these attractive, entertaining designs will be indispensable to commercial artists and designers. They'll also delight Americana enthusiasts, ephemera collectors, and the casual browser.
