Magazine Art: Tobacco Products

A noxious weed, and an important part of the American economy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, tobacco advertising paid for many an editorial lunch and kept lots of artists employed.

Ad for the Anti-Cancer Pipe, from the December 9, 1905 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Too bad it doesn't solve the lung cancer problem; but it might well have helped the ones who got cancer of the lip or tongue (which was a real problem at the time).

Ad for Murad Cigarettes. Not from a magazine as such, but from a 1923 theater program from Henry Miller's Theatre in New York City. Unusually for Murad, it seems to be signed.

Selling cigarettes to women, and one of the most remarkable ads ever designed for this purpose. Winsor McCay, best known for Little Nemo, but a then-famous illustrator in a variety of fields, went not just over the top but completely out of sight with this one: whips, domination, chains, spiritual peace, American Intelligence, and two suggestive hillocks. But the copywriter was singing the same tune. From the October 25, 1929 issue of LIFE, the Humor Magazine. Artist: Winsor McCay Source:...

Famous artist and famous theme, and the slogan, so help us, is "Nature in the raw is seldom mild." The ad department was having a small joke at our expense; how else to figure this quote from Emerson about better mouse-traps, followed by "Does this not explain the world-wide acceptance and approval of Lucky Strike?" Still, you can't complain about an ad...
