the twist: advertising: way back then

i am always on the hunt for old advertising promotions.  recently i wandered into an old paper show and found some amazing treasures.  so take a journey with me to 1878 -1910 and see how they did it way back then.  i think these die cut images are just beautiful.  perhaps used as direct mail pieces or presented to customers for patronage, they have survived for us to enjoy.  what do you think they will say about our work in a hundred years?
