Dr. Seuss Flit Insecticide Ads

Posted by Administrator on 3/23/2012 to Featured Ad Series of the Week
Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. His children's books have been part of our culture for over 75 years! The books he created have stood the test of time. Many of his books have been turned into movies, such as Horton Hears a Who, The Grinch who Stole Christmas... and most recently, The Lorax.

But... what many people don't know, is that before he became known as one of the greatest children's authors of all time... he was actually an advertising illustrator! This week, I'd like to share with you some of the work he did for Flit Insecticide. This series was produced in 1935, two years before he published his first children's book. It's very interesting to see how his advertising style influenced his artwork in his books.
