Looking at these advertisements, I like to study not only how the books were promoted (the choice of words and illustration), but I also like to spot the street addresses of the publishing houses to see where they were once located and to imagine what the city and the publishing world were like then. Eleven of these advertisements were highlighted by Flavorwire. Go to this LINK to see vintage print ads for F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, and more.
