Protose The Tasty Vegetable Meat That Looks, Tastes And Smells Like Meat


The front panel has an double orange line around a light orange background with the title inside. The title is blue and dark orange lettering. There is an illustration of a can of Protose, salt and pepper shaker, and a platter of Protose meatloaf. The back panel has a picture of a woman reading a book in a chair near a fireplace. There is a cover of Healthful living shown. The text is a promotion for the book. The company's name is below that followed by two orange lines and a dealer name: G.W. Reynolds & Son, General Merchandise, 30 Lincoln Ave., Carbondale, Penna. Opening the first fold, the header is Eat Protose in orange lettering with why one would want to eat Protose over eating meat. When open full, the sheet has a panel with a can of Protose and the prices, two panels with recipes, and a panel with an illustration of sandwiches and a note that all dishes using meat can use Protose instead.
