Many people are attracted to cigarette cards primarily for the pictures, but there is also much pleasure and instruction to be gained from the 'fine print'. The typography is often an impressive feat of design in miniature and the captions contain valuable information as well as a great deal of entertaining trivia. For the serious collector no detail is too small to notice.
