Product description

Title: 50s All American Ads

Edited by Jim Heimann

As McCarthyism swept across the United States and capitalism was king, white America enjoyed a feeling of pride and security that was reflected in adverstising. Carelessly flooding society with dangerous misinformation, companies in the 50s promoted everything from vacations in Las Vegas, where guests could watch atomic bombs detonate, to cigarettes as healthy mood - enhancers, promoted by a baby who claims his mother feels better aftyer she smokes a Marlboro.

From "The Worlds Finest Automatic Washer" to the Cadillac which "Gives a Man a New Outlook," you'll find a colorful plethora of ads for just about anything the dollar could buy.

The book has an illustrated cover with white lettering to the spine.

The book has wear and tear on the lower outer corner of the upper cover and wear on the upper outer corner of the upper cover.

The upper and lower outer corners of the lower cover has wear and tear and bumping.

The lower edge of the spine has bumping.
