— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

THE AGE OF THE MAD MEN – FLICKR FIND.

1960's Advert Mad Men 1

Here’s a fantastic flickr set uncovering the delightful world of 1960’s Advertising, US style. It’s illuminating to see the morals and attitudes of the Mad Men world so accurately reflected in these ads, it shows how well the show is researched and written, but also the almost unnerving positivity of advertising of this age. It’s pure unadulterated selling, and in it’s own way is quite a refreshing change of pace.

It’s a big collection, about 300/400, so take some time to really dig around. See some more of my favorites after the jump. (P.S if you want more of this type of stuff then head over to The Footnotes Of Mad Men – beware! Season 3 spoilers will be there for all UK followers…)
