General Telephone advertisementI’ve posted seven more scans in the Vintage Phone Advertisements area, including a couple of General Telephone ads that feature the artwork of Dom Lupo. Dom did a number of advertisements over the years, including a two or three year stint rendering the “giant telephone man” for GTE. He also illustrated numerous books, painted the cover art for the 7th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook and, from 1963 until his retirement, worked exclusively for Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Born in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1919, he was trained at Boston’s Child Walker School of Design and has been a member of The Society of Illustrators since ‘54. Dom now lives, and paints, in Ramona, California.
