Front Wrapper Design Style: "Conventional"

Absolutely the most prolific wrapper design over the five decades that these little booklets were published. This is essentially the "canonical" wrapper style, which served as the foundation for dozens of variant wrapper designs over the years that followed its emergence. The majority of booklets with this front wrapper style were issued between 1924 and the late 1930's. Accurate dating, however, is impossible based on front wrapper design style alone. Considerations such as typeface and fonts used, number of staples, back wrapper style, etc. must be taken in to consideration. Additional information can be found in Dating Little Blue Books.
