Ink blotters were the business cards of their day—highly absorbent paper used to soak up the excess from fountain pens so popular following World War II rationing, but which virtually disappeared with the invention of the ballpoint (popularized by Parker Pens as ‘The Jotter’—derived from blotter—in 1954).

“Today,” according an eBay expert in the field, “these vintage blotters, fabricated in the 1930s and 1940s, are actual highly prized and sought-after collectibles.” Especially if the model for their artwork was a pre-discovery MARILYN MONROE! The Celebrity Sleuth Collection comprises 14 such vintage beauties—which she posed for acclaimed artist Earl Moran from 1946-48.

Almost always suggestive, with nursery rhymes like: “Little Boy Blue, Come Blow Your Horn” and “Peter Peter, Pumpkin Eater” {Sleuth managed to acquisition the aboriginal pose that the artist chose}…

…to then cover with clothes for public display!
