Blown away...

I came across this on a study break, (who am I kidding, I've just been watching tv shows for the past couple of hours lol), and I was super impressed. It's a short commercial advertising the Faber Castell Artist pen - with emphasis on its precision. I love how unique the idea was, and I think the campaign was pretty successful. I'd buy their pen. Besides the videos, I included some other drawings taken from this site

High Flight, a Novel in Pictures 1929


Looking through the Montreal Herald in April 1929, I stumbled across an ongoing story that lasted the month entitled "High Flight" written by Ruth Dewey Groves. A quick google search will show you that it was made into a book (though I think it may be a little difficult to find a copy)-

 
  
What I loved about this weekly romance, was that each excerpt was accompanied a lovely photo, with a short caption. I personally did not have a chance to read the story, so the images were especially interesting when taken out of context. The captions become insightful or comical, and it's also interesting how the some of the narrative comes through...
