Excerpt from Slobodkina’s “Notes for A Biographer”, Vol. II, Pg 44
“As an artistic young lady of impeccable taste, I was supposed to be able to design a suitable poster to be placed on the counters of all those drugstores which did not shrink away from the thought of a new product not “nationally advertised”. I produced an elegant poster, properly decadent and moderne in spirit.”
