A history of printed cosmetics advertising throughout the 20th-century, this study charts the growth of mass-circulation magazines and how they led to a huge increase in advertising space and, by beginning of the 21st century, had to compete with those in other media such as television and the internet. Showing how advertising became the engine of capitalism that directed political destinies and even influenced international conflicts and military victories by means of propaganda, this references pays special attention to the ways in which the cosmetic advertising industry became a dominant driving force in Western culture. Eighty beautiful, full color reproductions of ads, taken from the Library of Historic Advertising, are also included in this fascinating look at the history of how cosmetics have been sold.
