More Information
The Jeep, despite its small engine and public underestimation, represents the most well known example of an American manufacturer's success at making the transition from war propaganda to mainstream popular advertising. Made famous by the appearance of a few articles, images of the Jeep could be found everywhere: on stationary, match boxes, playing cards, and appeared to invade America and then the world. The firm Willys further strengthened the phenomenon by inundating the press with large format color advertisements in order to compete with Bantam, the original maker of the engine. While the group was in reality too small to tackle both the demand of this project and the needs of their major client Ford, Willys was nevertheless able to dominate the publicity about the all terrain vehicle by devoting excellent illustrators to the job. Given the firm's success, the image of the Jeep was thus highly exploited and used in other campaigns advertising the promotion of other products, personnel recruitment, as well as a variety of other items. Organized by product, Hadacek's work gathers together a superb collection of illustrations and material, retracing an entire period focused on a vehicle that initially went unnoticed but quickly became a major symbol of postwar ingenuity.
