This week I was finally able to return the favor and write about one of my favorite subjects, oranges! Or really, orange labels and advertising.

on the guest entry I wrote for Chic Soufflé
I encourage you to take a look at the entry on her blog and enjoy some of the beautiful, intense, whacky, and zany images used to sell Valencian oranges in the first half of the 20th century.
