All the charm and color of more than a centurys 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 worlds 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.
Robert Reed is the author of more than a dozen novels, including Marrow and The Well of Stars, and a number of stories that have appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Science Fiction Age. He lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.
