Graphis Annual ’61/62. Pt.1

This is from an international advertising and packaging annual. These books used to be pretty cheap but now even the beat up ones are kind of pricey. Man, I could look at this stuff all day. [click on image to enlarge]

    me too! great stuff, when print was the focus and TV the new frontier. these great looking ads would run forever. Maybe (not maybe, definitely) i’m just an old idiot but these ads were more human, really direct, thoughtful and immediate “it’s got to grab you in the first 10 seconds” as they say (now it’s more like 4 seconds, if you can look up from your smartphone while dodging another person looking at their smartphone) but the content is the focus.
    thanks tim!!!
