is your advertising drowning in greasepaint?

Vintage Ad #543: Is Your Advertising Drowning in Greasepaint?
The model in this ad is - the heaviness of the makeup under her nose makes you wonder what else she may be hiding. Her expression under the clown's smile fits with the ad's message that print ads aren't necessarily fun to produce. Marketing in magazines might not be glitzy, but print ensures longevity for a striking image or campaign even if the passage of time wipes out the advertiser.

We apologize to those readers with coulrophobia.
