All-American Ads

american-ads.jpgThe rest of my holiday book order arrived yesterday and I’m enjoying an ‘eye-candy overload’ from all the vintage advertising, fashion images which I’ll be sharing this week. All-American Ads 1900-1919 is packed full to the brim (638 pages, an exhaustive compendium of ads from the period—many of which haven’t been seen for over eight decades) of intricately designed and beautifully illustrated, often in the art nouveau style popular at the time. This is a fascinating reminder of surprisingly simpler times and a rediscovery of a forgotten age in advertising history.
