Brought to you by Dr. Seuss

Before he was known for his doodles, rhymes and lovable characters, Dr. Seuss drew the world of advertising. He supported himself and his wife Helen through the Great Depression drawing ads for names as big as Ford, GE and NBC.

The University of California in San Diego has compiled a fantastic collection of the Doctor's illustrated, advertising work.

The work of Seuss pre-children's book fame, is clearly from the same hand that brought us Horton, The Lorax and the Sneetches. If you look at the ads, you'll see characters that surely look familiar.
I encourage you to browse the whole collection— being a Seuss fan myself, this is like an unearthed treasure!
