Giovanni Mingozzi’s ATLA for Ebano shoe polish

Giovanni Mingozzi was a prominent, prolific illustrator in the first half of the 1900s. In his hometown Bologna he founded ATLA, an advertising agency for which he created posters for a number of clients.

Here is a series from the 1920s, promoting cream shoe polish by a company called Ebano, a manufacturer of household goods founded in Bologna by Ernesto Jori in 1926.
