1918 Needlecraft Magazine Cover and Cream of Wheat and Blue Jay Advertisements - image 1 of 16

This is an attractive cover from the July 1918 issue of Needlecraft Magazine. The cover depicts a young woman wearing a white embroidered outfit of the period and the graphics are very nice. This includes several advertisements. One is for Blue-jay corn remover, Needlecraft premiums for their customers and an old Cream of Wheat Advertisement that appeared in this issue. The ad features the cereal, Cream of Wheat, being enjoyed by a young boy sitting on a crate. There is a smiling chef in the background. The ad reads “A Case of Desertion”. The artwork for the advertisement was done by prominent artist Denman Fink and is copyrighted 1909. The ads were removed from the original 20th century periodical.

There is some discoloration due to age. The edges are a rough but would be covered up if matted or framed. There are some small tears on the edges and small holes where the pages were stapled together. There is a crease through the center of the ads. There is some writing on the top of the cover.

There are four pages to this item. The pages are printed back to back. You can separate the pages and frame two ads if you wish. The Blue-jay ad is on the back of the magazine cover and the Cream of Wheat ad is on the back of the Needlecraft cover.

The pages measure approximately 10 3/4” by 15”.
