These poster inserts ran in The Inland Printer and other trade journals such as The Printer and Bookmaker as well as The American Bookmaker. Will Bradley created a series of more than 20 posters for The Ault and Wiborg Company between 1895 and 1900 that were considered some of his finest design work.
