Lucky Strike Cigarettes -1929A
Selling cigarettes to women, and one of the most remarkable ads ever designed for this purpose. Winsor McCay, best known for Little Nemo, but a then-famous illustrator in a variety of fields, went not just over the top but completely out of sight with this one: whips, domination, chains, spiritual peace, American Intelligence, and two suggestive hillocks. But the copywriter was singing the same tune. From the October 25, 1929 issue of LIFE, the Humor Magazine.
