Quick Henry, The Flit!

The generous and always interesting folks at Design Taxi just released an article at their site called Early Advertising Artworks by Doctor Seuss. Did you know that Doctor Theodore Seuss Geisel was an illustrator before he found fame as a children’s book author?

Decades ago, I was the Executive Art Director at Ballantine Books which is an imprint of Random House. On my first day, I rode up in the elevator with Dr. Seuss. What a trip! When I left for lunch, I rode down to the lobby with Gore Vidal. I was too scared to make eye contact. Working for Random House was the best job I ever had.

Design Taxi’s post led me to The Advertising Artwork of Dr. Seuss. Give yourself a treat and see the early work of a man whose work entertained generations of children. So many of his characters and stories have entered the popular culture of people around the globe.
