On the cover of the latest issue of “Ye Olde Magic Mag,” editor Marco Pusterla has featured an old advertisement from his collection, which you can see below. It’s probably around 100 years old. However, the publishing “BM” company has not been identified yet. A textiles or yarn company? Or makers of fine linen playing cards? Or something totally different? Maybe from France or Belgium?
Any helpers or ideas?
By the way, once you are interested in this, why don’t you consider subscribing to Marco’s wonderful little journal? It’s available both in print and in PDF format, and it makes for a great read on magic history and collecting four times a year!
