I ran across this magazine on eBay. Given the cover, I couldn’t resist buying it, though there was no other jeep pics or illustrations within it.

    Dave, it is amazing how often the Jeep was represented in print during the war and how it was identified with the GI and war effort. We have stationary sold in base stores during the war that have the Jeep front and center. One set was titled “Jeep Notes”

    I have definitely been fascinated with the use of the jeep in illustrations throughout WWII and later. I have some WWII stationary, but I don’t know where it was sold. It is getting more difficult to find illustrations that we haven’t seen anymore, so spotting this one was great.

    Unfortunately, as I’m sure you are aware, the availability of these and other unique vintage jeep items (Sales Builders, Kaiser Jeep News, Jeep News, Globetrotter magazines to name a few) on eBay seems a rarity these days. So, sadly, unearthing some of this vintage stuff is getting more difficult.
