1930s Commercial Art

For most people, weekends are a chance to relax and get out of office wear. But at a “superheroes and villains” costume party I went to on the weekend, I dressed in an ultra conservative suit to play Lois Lane. I soon deeply regretted my choice of character as I discovered that, for me, anyway, there’s little more dull and depressing than wearing corporate attire. I have new respect for office types who manage to wear this kind of uniform day after day and somehow maintain bright and cheerful personalities! Anyway, in an attempt to cheer myself up, and bring a bit of colour to your working week (especially for those of you who do happen to be in an office!), I present some scans from 1930s Commercial Art – a Pepin Press Design Book. Happy Monday!
