The Maddest of All Mad Men

Before entertaining generations with his literature and illustrations as Dr. Suess, Theodore Seuss Geisel was illustrating ads for Ford, GE and NBC campaigns. Dating back to 1927, after graduating from Oxford, he worked as a cartoonist (shockingly) until his cartoons were picked up by an advertising agency. His agency success fueled his passion of animations and writing, eventually breaking through with a publisher and beginning his legendary career. Amazing to see these early ads, and his styling which so evidently carried over to his books.
