Join Warren Bernard tonight at the esteemed Politics & Prose Bookstore, in Washington, DC as he presents Drawing Power: A Compendium of Cartoon Advertising!
Starting at 7:00 PM, Bernard will show you work from the 1870s to 1940, documenting how popular cartoon characters like the Yellow Kid, Little Orphan Annie, and Popeye have figured in advertising campaigns, and how their creators were highly sought-after pitchmen, selling products alongside the best movie stars in Hollywood. As part of his presentation, Bernard will have on-hand original ads and other advertisting items from the era.
But wait! There's more! (See what I did there?) If you purchase a copy of Drawing Power: A Compendium of Cartoon Advertising that evening, you will also receive a complimentary one-day pass to SPX: Small Press Expo in Betheseda, Maryland!
This deal just can't be beat! Politics & Prose Bookstore is located at 5015 Connecticut Ave NW in Washington, DC.
