Wrigley's Doublemint gum was first produced in 1914. Throughout
its long history, twins have been used to advertise the product.
These two posters, with twins in matching hats, were created as
part of a billboard campaign by Otis Shepard, who worked as the
art director of the Wrigley Company from 1932 until 1962. His airbrush
technique, economy of line, and clean modern design made Otis Shepard
one of America's premier poster designers.
