Vintage Cartoon Advertisements

“Have a pack of Dentyne. It’s fine after meals!”

I bought this vintage magazine advertisement printing block this past weekend in a secondhand shop in Bridgton, Maine. My guess: it’s drawn by Jack Markow.

Here's the "positive" of the block. Now you can see the pith-helmeted explorer calmly offering his Dentyne gum to the cannibals. 

I have another vintage Dentyne gum advertising block here:

"Well, I can keep the Dentyne Chewing Gum, Cant I?"

Those faces certainly look similar to the faces on the cover of his DRAWING AND SELLING CARTOONS book.

If anyone has scans of these Dentyne cartoon advertisements, please let me know.
