This is another Coles Phillips-illustrated advertisement for Sheaffer fountain pens. It appeared in Motion Picture Classic in 1920.
Strictly speaking, this ad features a newspaper, not a book. It’s so exquisite, though, that I am giving it a pass.
I adore vintage adverts of all kinds, but inevitably my favourites feature famous people. There is often a gap between a celebrity’s public image and the products or services they are willing to represent in exchange for money and more press. Naturally, I am in love with this list.*

Be sure to stop back and let me know what you think!
*My only complaint: I wish they had included more than one ad featuring a woman writer.
