Starring Lion Soap!

I wonder if some out-of-work actor took a part-time job as a graphic designer for the Lion Soap company. I mean, is this dramatic, or what? Shakespeare's dream come true!

"Out, out damp spot! Wherefore art thou, Lion Soap?"

But, don't get me wrong, I love it. Don't you?

  4. That is a lovely old postcard! (at least it looks like a post card).
    I have a postcard from a blogging friend that I went ahead and posted it today, too. I hope Marie gets better soon! I miss her PFF posts and having links to all the others to visit, too!
    Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

  5. I love all the drama about a product. I wonder if the artist was attempting a visual pun: the red drape for a soap made by "Draper & Co."

  6. What an imaginative idea, Annie! I'll bet you're right too. A red drape for Draper & Co. The more we study advertising, whether vintage or current, the more we realize that every single thing we see in an ad has been calculated carefully by a studied committee of experts. (In my women's studies classes, we see this with respect to issues of concern to women in particular.) Great observation, Annie!

  7. Geez. I can't take my eyes off of that soap ad. It's gorgeous! I just love the look of theatre curtains. They make everything so regal!

    Oh. I made it here from the blog!

  8. Love the bold red drape. This would be so dramatic blown up and hung up in a bathroom...

  9. You made me laugh!!! What a great tag line for Lion Soap! If they had only thought of it, they would probably still be around today!

    Blessings,

  10. It's especially pretty -- I wonder if the artist was highlighting the company name "draper" with the fancy drapery...early subliminal advertising, perhaps?
