The Book Nook

Published on .

In need of a quick but hearty print advertising blast from the pre-PC past? Look no further than the fat, juicy flexi-covered volumes just out from Taschen: All-American Ads of the '40s (featuring 768 pages and 1,000 illustrations) and All-American Ads of the '50s (928 pages and 1,400 illustrations). Collected and introduced by Jim Heimann - an author, graphic designer and justifiably self-described ephemera-archivist extraordinaire - these $39.99 bundles of history are more fun than smoking Chesterfields while driving a De-Soto. See taschen.com for details.
