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 book for yourself. Coming in March 2012. Published by Taschen. Available from Amazon.
