1930's Magazine Advertising Window Cards
In a much earlier time most people picked up the latest copy
of their favorite magazine at a newsstand, candy store, luncheonette,
or corner grocery store. As a way of reminding readers that the
latest issue was available the store owner was supplied with window
cards. These cardboard signs showed the cover of the current copy
and were displayed either in the window or somewhere inside the
store itself. They provide us with superb examples of the graphic
design styles of their era.
