Advertising – Paper & Printing

Currently at a modest 50 items, Advertising – Paper & Printing deserves to be cultivated more (and the depths of my hermit-packed, cave like office could certainly provide the materials). Illustration Westvaco (1927-1954), which has been around far longer than this infantile subject, are essentially printing advertisements in booklet form. These are single-page ads culled from publications such as Communication Arts, Fortune Magazine, and Graphis, ranging from the late 1940′s to the early 1980′s.

We have a number of chivalrous Champion Paper ads, some of which are variations on the  below but with a different background saturation color.

If it is an ad placed in a late 1940′s or early 1950′s Fortune Magazine, there is a one in three chance that a hand will feature prominently.
