Via Ads of the World. Now this is one I can't imagine ever being used in the US. But in France where Dore's work is better known to the public? Okay. The original image, by the way, is "Hop O' My Thumb Succeeds in Pulling off One of the Giant Ogre's Seven League Boots" by Gustave Doré.

  1. Thanks for posting this! You're right, this ad wouldn't fly over here, so I probably never would have seen it. They did a fantastic job of making the shoes match the rest of the drawing!
