The Art of Advertising
5 March - 31 August 2020
The Art of Advertising tells the story of British advertising from the mid 18th century to the 1930s through an incredible collection of handbills, trade cards, novelties, posters and much more. Drawing on the Bodleian’s renowned John Johnson Collection of Printed Ephemera, one of the largest and most important collections of printed ephemera in the world, the exhibition reveals how advertisements reflect social attitudes over time while showcasing some of the finest examples of advertising illustration and commercial art.
