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.
