Description:

The ad on the upper left corner features a Kampkook Stove. Emphasizing tasty food and a condensed package, the designers hope to draw people who camp. The image of the gentleman with the food highlights his upper-class status, as he is well-dressed. People in the background highlight a common activity, fishing in a canoe. Individuals in the canoe consist of a woman and man, which indicates the hopes of capturing a wide scope of middle class people.
