I agree, "Clip Art" or "Graphic Arts" would seem an appropriate answer. Also, they might be described as "icons" or "avatars" in another usage. Again, the answer to this question is perhaps largely a factor of where the clips are used, what they are being used for and how they are included. There is a lovely "...

The style of 20s-30s cartoons is called Inkblot (see http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/InkblotCartoonStyle for more details), maybe this could help in your research. The two images you posted have both an Inkblot feel, but they are more "graphical", in a sense of being more graphic illustrations. Probably they're also both vector illustrations, ...

You can get more information on the related wiki page, although not all members are listed there (it's a big family): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illustration If you're looking for an "art style" wording, to describe it for example on a resume or on a commission service ...

I would classify these as surrealist graphic icons, maybe? There are definitely simplified elements of surrealism here. If you find this style interesting though, and your goal is to immerse yourself in similar images, try your hand at these searches: Simple iconography, Simple surrealism, Line art illustrations, Vintage illustrations, Vintage surrealism,...

Neither 'landscape illustration' nor 'pen-and-ink illustration', as mentioned in the accepted answer, are styles: one is the genre, the second the medium. Having found a high-resolution version of the original picture in your question, it's more obvious the label shows the typical line-and-dot style of etchings or similar engravings: Hence, technically, it'...

Using the glossary of art movements, schools, and styles compiled by Joelle Steele (http://www.joellesteele.com/artmovements.html), perhaps the best fit would be folk art, or "naïve art" or "outsider art." Folk Art. Art created by people who lack formal training, but follow an established tradition of craftsmanship and style, often regional in ...

Here is a link showing different styles of posters. To me, it looks like a constructionist poster or a post-modern poster since it seems to be of mixed styles. It could just simply be a mixed-media graphic too.
