    This book is everything I had hoped for and more! It is jampacked with art and is exactly what I had been searching for. I’d been wanting a book with vintage character advertisement art to use as reference for an art project and this is so full of goodies! It is quite a thick little book and a wonderful addition to my library. Also a great glimpse into the history of some well-known companies and the mascots they created. Before the Quik bunny, there was a little man named Mr. Pick Quik. Hi-C had a giraffe character named Hi-Cecil. Burger King’s original King was a fat, jolly cartoon. I bought both this volume and volume 2 together. You won’t regret this purchase!
