Dr. Seuss – before his children’s books, he drew great ads

Before we knew him as Dr. Seuss, he was Theodore Seuss Geisel, adman. As early as 1927 he was illustrating ads for Ford, GE and NBC campaigns. His illustrative style was the same, even then.

The Dr. Seuss adult picture book – Seven Lady Godivas

That One Time Dr. Seuss Published A Book Full Of Naked Ladies

Did you know that in 1939, Dr. Seuss published a book that would’ve spurred an equally dunderheaded moral panic if it came out today? That book was the adult picture book The Seven Lady Godivas. The book bombed so badly that the author admitted, “I attempted to draw the sexiest babes I could, but they came out looking absurd.”

There was not one; there were Seven Lady Godivas, and their nakedness actually was not a thing of shame. So far as Peeping Tom is concerned, he never really peeped. ‘Peeping’ was merely the old family name, and Tom and his six brothers bore it with pride.

Behold possibly the only known instances of Seussian T&A.
