Advertising Advertising

Even advertising agencies have to advertise.  Dieselpunk posted this image of a 1938 brochure cover for the London Transport advertising services.  If you wanted to put your advertisement in front of London commuters, these were the folks to call.  I thought it was interesting that the artist adopted a very 21st Century-style tag in the form of "Zero."
