This chapter discusses Arthur Szyk's illustrations for print advertising. As well as appearing among the news, features, and editorial comment of several American periodicals, Szyk's cartoons also figured in some of these same magazines, and in several others, in a completely different context. Many American corporations used the work of artists in their printed advertising, and Szyk created illustrations for a number of them. Since virtually every American company involved in war material was eager to tell the public about its particular role in the struggle, there were many opportunities for all types of artists. Thus the ranks of editorial cartoonists who also worked on these commercial projects were swelled by numerous other artists and designers, including Szyk.
