Rainbow-colored portrait of actor Tom Selleck in an advertisement display for Salem cigarettes; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown from chest up while gazing at the viewer, holding a cigarette in his right hand, which is out and to the left of his body; as viewer moves right, he moves to cigarette to his lips, inhales, and then lowers the cigarette down and to the right of his body; as viewer moves to right, a pack of Salem cigarettes is shown below, which moves across the hologram until it disappears to the right.
Many commercial companies experimented with holograms for promoting their products and services. Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
