From 1920 to 1964, Sam Gold of Premium King, and from 1944 to 1974, Gordon Gold of Living Legend, were considered the orginators and largest creators and producers of children's premiums in the United States and Europe. They sold to the giants of advertising and their advertising agencies; such companies as General Foods, Kelloggs, Quaker Oats, General Electric and Bordens. This detailed hand-drawn presentation layout booklet, featuring Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer leading readers through a plethora of fun puzzle pages, was created with the participation of Robert May, Rudolph's creator. The detailed art is drawn in colored pencil, and the booklet measures 8" x 10.5". It is stapled and is a very tight comprehensive of what the finished printed booklet would look like. An additional alternate comprehensive drawing of the back cover is included. Also accompanying the lot is a "Letter of Origin," written by Gordon K.
