Into the Archives: The Original Dingbat


I still have a full collection of Dover clip art books stacked up in my office. Of course the whole collection is now available digitally, but I would not change one moment of the many days I spent (and still spend) poring over these wonderful books. If you are anything like me, you can imagine my excitement when I found these Pioneer-Moss ads from 1970 in the GDUSA archives.




I hope this wonderfully random grouping puts a smile on your face and if you have any more information about the images or Pioneer-Moss I’d love to hear about it in the comments section.
