Advertising, its principles and practice - by Harry Tipper - PDF ebook

Advertising, its principles and practice 

Advertising, its principles and practice

This volume is the outgrowth of two years' experience by the authors in developing the work of the Advertising Division of New York University. 
During this period they found that the most serious hindrance to education in preparation for advertising was the lack of suitable text-books. Many valuable books existed, it is true, but most of them seemed either too specialized or too narrow, or lacking in fundamentals. 

This condition led the four authors to collaborate in the writ- ing of this text-book. The distinctive feature of the book is its attempt to com- bine all the various arts and sciences that enter into the work of advertising and to give the fundamentals of each with ref- erence to all the others. It includes the economic, psycholog- ical, and physical factors, together with the essential principles of artistic arrangement and English composition as applied to the construction of advertisements.

 Finally, it sums up all these parts in the actual operation of an advertising campaign. Although the book is simple enough to be understood by the student of advertising who has had no experience, it should be almost equally valuable to the advanced practitioner who wishes a broader view of some phases of his profession. Principles have constantly been stressed, but practical aspects have not been neglected. 

The authors acknowledge their indebtedness to many special treatises on advertising. They acknowledge special indebted- ness to the Alexander Hamilton Institute for permission to use material from its Modern Business text on Advertising by Hotchkiss and Tipper.
