All the charm and color of more than a century's worth of advertising postcards is here in a single volume. They range from
vintage to modern and include products, hotels, country clubs, banks, utilities, restaurants, transportation, and even world's
fairs. From the Admiral Vee Motel to the confections of the Zumole Trokey Girl, Advertising Postcards offers sweeping coverage
of this enduring method of print advertising. Starting with the very early advertising postcard days of the late 19th century,
the volume spans more than 100 years, with remarkable and memorable examples. Everything from Akron Lamps to Zero candy bars
eventually found their way to the concept of the advertising postcard, and more than 500 of them are illustrated in full color
and documented here. Their historical context is presented and current values are given.
