Muffy discovers....


Muffy St. Bernard -- all those who love America should pore over the New Yorker archives as he does -- has discovered the priceless advertising of Cleon Throckmorton, an architect, set designer, and commercial artist who flourished for twenty-five years or so beginning in the late twenties. Irony and indirection this profound deserves fame. The Hungry Ghost blog is doing its bit.

I'm glad somebody else finds these as intriguing as I do! I feel much less like I'm in my own bubble.

I will continue to keep the world posted. There were no advertisements in the latest issue, sadly.
