About this Item

4to. 29 by 21 cm. [15], 134, [46] pp. With hundreds of pictorial ads reproduced, mostly several to a page, but a significant number full page and 39 pages in full color. With the distance of nine decades, one can see that the close affinity of these fine examples of commercial art and the more high-toned gallery artwork of the day, and that the boundary separating the commerical from the more purely artistic was a blur. In fact, some of the designers, painters or photographers here are revered today for their non-commercial work. Guy Arnoux, Edward Steichen, Norman Rockwell, Benito, N.C. Wyeth, Georges LePape, Rockwell Kent are among those with recognizable names today. Here abound cloched hatted Flappers, handsome Arrow-collared Ivy Leaguers, Art Deco linealities and sophistication, the dramatic city-scapes evocative of Sloane, Bellows and Hopper, literal historicism. There is a wide range of styles and sensibilities, but an overarching commonality is the effective economy and drama invested in so many of the images. Light wear to the cover.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
