Dutch Tobacco Posters - part 1

Before the full health implications of smoking became generally accepted, smoking had been promoted as being glamorous, manly, and even making you more attractive to the opposite sex. These Dutch posters dating from as early as 1895 to 1987 are consigned to history but the graphic design and illustration remain interesting even if they are now historical documents.

  1. The "1950-75 Coopvaert Tobacco" advert clearly reminds me of Magritte. :P

    Probably because of the 3D effect of the pipe and the smoke against the wallpaper.
