Vintage Advertising Symbols for Adobe Illustrator

Vintage advertising from the 1930's and 40's

Liptstick, Tea and Popping Pills

(Originally posted on Illustrator Freebies, June 19th 2013)

I love vintage magazines, they’re a wealth of information on everything from popular culture stories to ¬†craft projects, fashion styles, recipes and some highly inappropriate advertisements.

This week I present a set of elements from some of my favourite ads from the 1930’s and 40’s

Ads for everything from lipstick that stays put when you’re smoking and snogging, a love of ¬†aspirin and the poor secretary who was sent back to the filing room because of her halitosis.
