William F. Eisner Museum of Advertising & Design

The British novelist George Norman Douglas once remarked, "You can tell the ideals of a nation through its advertisements". With that spirit in mind, the Scout Report turns its pointer to the website for the William F. Eisner Museum of Advertising & Design in Milwaukee. The late Mr. Eisner had a long and distinguished career in the world of advertising, and his widow, Elaine Eisner, was compelled to create this museum after his death in 1990. Visitors can find basic information about the museum here of course, but the real treat for online users will be the well-designed online exhibits. One fine exhibit is "The Art of the Album Cover", where visitors can roam through a gallery of some rather fine LP covers from the early days of that particular medium and still another chestnut that hones in on the legendary roadway billboards for Burma Shave.
