Click on images to enlarge

These are from a newly acquired book on advertising from the early 1900’s. This book is filled with all kinds of amazing things, including many examples of beautiful Typography like you the one you see above. This one is called Eccentric Egyptian. The commas look like mustaches to me. How fun!
