"The BIG Idea" Print Advertising from the 50's & 60's

The Big Idea. Prrint advertising in the 50s and 60s. The best of print advertising in the age of the Big Idea. At the height of American consumerism magazines were flooded with clever campaigns selling everything from girdles to guns. These optimistic indicators paint a fascinating picture of the colorful capitalism that dominated the spirit of the 1950s and '60s, as concerns about the Cold War gave way to the carefree booze-and-cigarettes Mad Men era.

from June 6th 2014  at the Woolloongabba Antiques Centre, 22 Wellington Rd, Brisbane.

Also a wide range of significant advertising campaigns from both eras, giving insight to the zeitgeist of the time.
