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.
