My ATC: Make Big Pay

ATC Title: Make Big Pay

This is another in the series I am doing from original pages from an October 1956 Mechanix Illustrated magazine. These are ads for men about finding new careers with minimal cost or effort, that will make them rich.

These are collages done with an inspiration by the Dada movement. They are very geometric.

I love the color of the papers, the paper is a newsprint type of paper which has oxidized or 'foxed' over time.

My father gave me these magazines recently. I am not sure if he found them at my grandmother's house or if he found them elsewhere.

I am making these for fun, to keep or trade, not as part of a swap.
