You've Seen The Opera, Now Use The Pencil

Did you know The Mikado is among the first properties licensed for merchandising? That's something I learned doing research for the graphic design of the Criterion release. There were soaps, sewing threads, toothpastes, tobbaco --all kinds of things. Even the type ornaments I use throughout the package were Mikado branded.
