Christmas has traditionally seen advertisers market the festive season in a highly creative manner. Today, we are used to seeing slickly produced Yuletide television adverts, some even starring well-known celebrities. But there was a time when consumers were lured by the printed page, making do with Christmas adverts published in newspapers, magazines, and books, and on trade cards and posters. But this didn't mean any less a creative approach was taken on the part of the advertiser. Indeed, the artwork and taglines of many vintage advertisements remain as fresh and appealing today as the day they were published.
