“Mid-Century Ads: Advertising in the Mad Men Age” Book

If you’re thinking what we’re thinking then, yes, everything in the mid-century has to be linked to Mad Men. It’s the law. Advertising from bygone eras is always a great view into what was deemed socially acceptable at that time. There’s plenty of casual sexism in the ads, which is to be expected in a book covering the ’50s and ’60s. Let’s be honest, it’s too late to be buying gifts now, get this bookMid Century Ads: Advertising in the Mad Men Age Book for yourself. Coming in March 2012. Published by Taschen. Available from AmazonMid Century Ads: Advertising in the Mad Men Age Book.
