About Us

The collection was established in 1990 by Larry and Suzanne Viner and is the largest and most comprehensive resource of its kind in Europe.

Suzanne was a buyer for Marks & Spencer before starting The Advertising Archives in 1990. She speaks French, Spanish, Italian & German and is a member of the NUJ. She has co-written many books over the years featururing archival imagery from Advertising Archives aswell as numerous newspapers & magazine articles on ephemera and social history.

Larry began his career as an actor and TV presenter and ran a wide variety of businesses before dedicating himself to The collection full time. He is a member of BAFTA and the NUJ, a valuation expert for many of the major London auction houses and frequently appears on radio and TV speaking on ephemera related subjects. Larry sits on the panel of the Advertising Slogan Hall of Fame, alongside David Abbott, Winston Fletcher and Dave Trott. As a member of The Royal Albert Hall he has also advised on the setting up and digitalisation of the historic Albert Hall Archive.
