31st Annual of National Advertising and Editorial Art (1951-1952)

I really dig old advertising and every now and then I’m lucky enough to come across an old book that collects the best of the previous years ad and editorial art. I also included a couple of advertisements from the end of the book from ad agencies and artist reps (to enlarge, click on photo’s)

the LP art was by Andrew Warhol

    I think my folks have a couple of books of “the year’s best” in this category — from the 70s — in their basement. I’ll email Betty and see if she can dig them up for you. If you can stand the smell of mold.

    Tim,
    Thats is really neat! thanks for posting these, i like old ad stuff too (mainly promo characters). funny seeing something credited to a young “andrew” warhol. does it say who drew the bottom pic? looks a bit like chas addams style.
    it’s amazing how many artists we all know from other things that got their start back in the 40’s/50’s at ad agencies and greeting card companies.
