blog on the art of 1950s and 60s technology ads
Thanks to Simon Webster and the twittersphere for alerting me to this blog on brainpickings.org on science and technology advertisements from the 1950s and 60s. Such beautiful modernist art for products that were either industrial or military, reminding us that even in this simple abstraction, the threat of the cold war was always at hand. The advertisement for copper, has small children watching television with a weird freak-out going on around them. So cool.
