Some favourite advertising characters

Above: Dutch Cleanser Girl, 1956
Above: Minute Man servicemen, 1954
Above: Miss Bell Telephone, 1951 and Mr Bell Telephone, 1941
Above: Buffalo Bee, c.1962
Above: Vassarette Girl, c. 1946

All from Meet Mr. Product: the Art of the Advertising Character by Warren Dotz and Masud Husain, Chronicle, San Francisco, 2003.

Clearly I like my advertising characters to have a bit of movement: though I wouldn't have been conscious of that before doing this post.

It's weird how when you collect things together (particularly in a blog) you get this visual insight into yourself and your 'leanings'... Thanks Sandra, great pics. jx
