    It makes me wanna buy buy buy

    Lose yourself in another era, with this book and its sister volume from the 40s. The paper is fine. The reproductions are color accurate and clear and the ads represented are choice. I've spent many hours in the library leafing through musty old Life magazines; researching vintage ad art for my design projects. This book makes it easy to soak up the themes and memes of 50's America, when ad men sold the country on a mythology that promised Future Age Living Now! Plus, reflecting the tastes of the time, there are lots of close ups of raw meat. Priceless!
