Here are three advertisements from a 1951 issue of the New Yorker magazine. I expect some dialogue about the first one… There is a screen moiré effect on these images at this size, due to the coarse dot screen used for halftone print images at the time. so click on the images for an enlargement of each ad.
Next up is a very elegant ad for Tiffany watches. There is little contentious about this, but have a look at the line work on the watch drawings. Mmm. Nice!
And finally, this one is for my friend Trevor, who knows a thing or two about a lot of things, but seriously knows his gin. Chin-chin!
