Vintage ads from 1969


We just watched the first episode of the new Madmen season last night. I love Matthew Weiner’s attention to detail. The shot of Don Draper riding the escalator against that colorful tile wall in the airport was to die for, let alone the costumes and hairstyles in the rest of the scenes. So I loved checking out these vintage ads from 1969 (the year the new season takes place) to get the vibe of the actual advertising world.

p.s I loved this interview with Matthew Weiner in the current issue of the Paris Review. Pick up the issue (with illustrations by me) to read the whole interview.
