Old Parker Adverts



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

These are reproductions of old Parker adverts that are in a small Parker address book. I am posting them on the off chance that they may be of interest.

These are just wonderful! I like the one with the very straightforward copy, "Buy a Parker Lucky Curve Fountain pen because it is a good pen." Still a good reason to buy anything.

That one cracked me up.

 

I'm a huge fan of the 50s era 51 ads, partly because I miss the old ad style of an illustration with lots of explanatory copy.

 

if I can contribute myself:

10 years on PFN! I feel old, but not as old as my pens.

Thanks everyone. If these are indicative of advertising history they show that pictures of young women have been used for a long time to try to sell things

 

Takkun, thanks for your addition. I have changed the heading in the hope that others will add adverts to the thread.

I hope you don't mind, I just did a blog post abou this, and linked back to this fine thread. Please let me know if I can properly attribute a photo credit, or if the link/image use is offensive, and I shall remove it.

 

 

I am pleased you like the post and I certainly don't mind you linking it to your blog.
