the microscope does in comparison to an ordinary camera. The dramatic
effect is obtained by showing both the enlarged and the normal proportion
in one advertisement. In the Jaeger advertisement the exaggeration
used is of a different order altogethermore subtle because the effect
is made up of a combination of little exaggerations. This is because it is
necessary in fashion advertising today to bring out, not only the style
points ol the garments, but to throw glamour round the wearer. In
such a way a sense of chic is evoked which not only qualifies the garment,
but creates that prestige round the name so necessary to a fashion firm.
The sketch implies chic by making the head smaller than in real life,
thus giving height and slimness. The exaggerated sweep of the cape
accentuates the narrow waist of the wearer. The simplicity of the tech
nique gives strength and character. In the Greys advertisement, literary
and visual exaggeration combine happily together. This is the cartoon
method, which presents its over-statement more satirically than the bluff
obviousness of the Churchman method. The technique of the drawing,
taken from a magazine context, helps to intensify its entertainment value.
