012462_BB1_050

" Gifts for Her"

This is an original 1950 halftone print of an elegant outdoor advertising billboard poster for gifts from the Smart Shop...for Her. Artist: B. F. Mitchem ; Art Director: B. F. Mitchem.

Period Paper is pleased to offer a fascinating collection of mini billboards (both color and black and white) of the finest examples of billboard poster advertising art as judged by the 19th National Competition and Exhibit of Outdoor Advertising Art, sponsored by The Art Directors Club of Chicago in 1950. Although as "mini billboards" they are but a fraction of the size of the original, their powerful graphic designs combined with a succinct advertising message make them highly collectible pieces for the popular cultural historian, the poster art collector, or for the person simply interested in the nostalgic appeal of these images of cultural Americana. Each item is very well preserved and would look magnificent framed. BB1
