This book, from the author of Old Magazines, is a pictorial history of colorful and interesting product ads found in vintage magazines. This collecting field is one of the least expensive left - almost anyone can afford to collect antique ads! They are easy to store in looseleaf binders, occupy very little space, and can be shelved like a book. Over 1,100 color photos of advertisements are featured in this bound-to-be bestseller. Coca-Cola and Cream of Wheat are two of the largest ad categories featured. Famous artists like Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish illustrated some of these vintage ads, and their works can be seen throughout Old Magazine Advertisements.
