Right From The Newspaper, 1968 To 1970s.

For all of these years, I have kept these actual ads. One was for I. Magnin and the rest were for J. Magnin. Up to a point in time, most newspaper and other publication art in the San Francisco Bay Area was assigned to the local artists.

Only recently, I discovered that at least the two above are not by a San Francisco artist because they are the style of the talented fashion designer and illustrator, Celine Hunter. She illustrated for Joseph Magnin, from her home in Helotes, Texas.

This I Magnin illustration and these JM illustrations may be by an artist here in the Bay Area, but there are no signatures.
