Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

About Mark Twain


The front right panel is framed by wheat and features a promotion for the recent addition to the Voigt Line called "Mark Twain." There are a few paragraphs describing the new product and three drawn color illustrations of different types of Voigt's Flour located at the bottom. The front left panel has two ways of mailing the leaflet. One is to mail it to a customer and the over is for the customer to mail it back to Voigt's Flour. Both have pictures of the factory in the upper left corner. The side to send to a customer is franked with one cent postage. The customer needs to put a two cent stamp on it to mail it back. The back panel is outlined in a red line and frames lithos of Voigt Flour bags in the upper left and right corners along with three bags of wheat and corn field at the bottom. The center allows for writing a letter.
