Read of the Week: Mid-Century Ads by Taschen

Taschen has delivered some brilliant books on fashion, art, film and music — over the years. One of my favourite series of books they release are based on advertisements in different eras. Mid-Century Ads is a decade old book that presents some classic adverts from the 1950s and ’60s.

If you’re a fan of the TV series Mad Men, you’ll love this book.
