Pretty Soap

Wednesday Advertising Day.

These Li'l Ivory strips are a sign of how creative and daring advertising comic strips could be in the late forties and fifties. I have tried to showcase as many as possible here, but I still do not get the impression they or the artists who did them get the appreciation they deserve. This series seems to have been originated by Paul Fung Sr., who died in 1945. I have more if you follow the label.
