National Geographic Advertising

Long before television or cell phones ––– magazines – periodicals – were the most successful way of advertising to make one’s product known to the greater public.

One of the most picturesque periods in American advertising was the later 1800s. Locomotive and car builders were taking advantage of the wood engraver’s and type designer’s skills and the combination produced some of the most beautiful results in the history of American advertising.
